Default Is There A Write Up On How To Change The Light In The Shifter?

I want to change the light in the shifter to white but just wondering if there's a write up
for it. Also what is the bulb type for it?

There is a write up to the tear down of shift knob and center console which I think you have to remove to get to the light. Search for Cup Holder Lights there tear down write up is in there.

Pull the bottom of the shifter down there will be a pin holding the knob on pull that off knob will come off then lift the whole square piece up from the back near the cup holder then you can get to the bulb, bulb is 194

You may want to double check but the color may just come from a bulb condom. Check it when you remove it and you may be able to get white without buying a bulb unless you plan to convert to led.

Technically you only need to remove the chrome shifter plate. Be careful or you'll break the tabs. I did this and a new plate costs 65.00.

Ok, ya I'll definately be sure to be careful with that. And do I do the same just pop the back up or is there a different way of popping it out?

Also is it just a standard 194 bulb or is it a specific 194 bulb?

Its a standard 194. I may have given you some bad advice. It might be better to remove that whole center section. That could be why I broke some of my tabs....Ill let you decide how you want to go about it.

I'll probably just take the whole console out, don't feel like paying $65 just for some tabs being broken.

Another thing, can I just take a Phillips head and pop the chrome plate from the back? Or do I just do it by hand?

If you take out the whole section you wont need to remove the chrome piece at all.

I already got it but thanks I just took the chrome piece out carefully, I had an extra led bulb laying around so I just put it in but the configuration of the lights was facing forward so it just illuminated the P in park and the rest was getting some light. But I ordered a 8k 360 led bulb which will probably do the job lol
