    C900 replace switch bulbs

    Hi Guys,

    I hope someone can give a bit of advice. A few of the bulbs have gone on some of the switches, such as the rear wiper switch, hazard lights etc, plus I want to upgrade them to LEDs as they will be brighter. I'm looking for a way to crack them open without doing permanent damage to them. It seems you have to press the button in which reveals a small white clip inside a gap on the top and bottom of the back part of the switch. It would seem the have to pushed in simultaneously to release the front part of the button. The problem of course is the button wants to spring back out if no pressure is exerted on it. Is there a knack to removing them to get into the bulbs?

    Also, are the electric window and sunroof buttons meant to light up?

    Some of these switches have what they call 'grain of wheat' bulbs. So small you cannot get LED equivalents as far as I'm aware.
