Default light out in heated seat switch

Just noticed one of my switches/buttons for my heated seats doesn't light up anymore with the dash lights. The orange light comes on when you turn on the heat but ambient light is gone. Can you dig into these switches and change a little bulb or am I looking at getting a whole new switch?

Thanks!

Oh this is a '97 btw

Pop the switch out, There may be a screw in pedestal type bulb in the switch

Just called Lexus. New switch is 108 bucks! Luckily I asked if it had bulbs inside you can replace and sure enough, two bulbs in there. 14 bucks...I ordered 2.

Well, guess that's about right - from an older parts list:
84751B BULB, SEAT HEATER SWITCH
84999-10190 MCV20; 12V 0.87W 2 $9.67
84999-10320 MCV20; 14V 0.84W 4 $9.67
