Hello, pull the control knobs off the heater/fan control levers, open the fuse cover at the top of the center of the dash, you will see two screws on each corner, remove these and pull the cover off, pry the plastic cover off the a/c,  heater control, the bulbs should be inside and can be pulled out.
