So the bulbs are sold attached to the black/brown plastic? Do they screw out or pop out?

Thanks to Lexusk8 for the original post. I just replaced mine; 2 bulbs, each $6.66(!) from Lexus. All this time I thought it was the individual switches that had inoperative lights. Had I known, I would have done these when I replaced my Pioneer LCD screen last weekend. Happily, my radio has no inoperative lights.

Interestingly, the new LED bulbs could not be hand tightened into the circuit board. I needed a thin blade screwdriver to gently turn them in their track. For future's sake, I sprayed a small bit of DeOxit onto a Q-tip, and rubbed that around the track for all the LED bulbs, before affixing the bulbs into their tracks.

Nice to have all lights again, after a couple years!

I'm new to the forum and will do my best to search more on this but.................for sure the trunk/gas button areas do not light up? I find it odd that at night you would have to turn on a light to see which button you'd be pressing. I understand once you know where they are then you can find each without really looking, but for a new lexus owner such as myself, I would have to turn the light on.

Hopefully I won't have any issues with doing this, I'm also replacing the bulbs for the radio. Just ordered the bulbs. Wish me luck!

Hello,

I've already bought the bulbs needed from the dealer. I know the whole center piece housing the radio, cc, ash tray, etc. needs to come out as a unit. The two nuts above the ashtray are easy enough to find by popping the above panel on top of the ash tray. There are two more nuts on top. Where exactly, I'm not sure. I've been told to pop out the 2 top vents and they are behind the vents. When I look into the vents, I see no fasteners of any kind. Not sure exactly what to do next? There are a total of about 6 bulbs I purchased from the dealer to fix the problem. It's definitely not one bulb behind the temp ****. I will post a note after I fix the problem.
