I have a Haynes manual and it shows that you pry off the molding around the shifter. At the 4 corners there are screws that allow you to remove the plastic shift console. Inside on the drivers side is the light bulb. Mine is also out. I have been trying to find out the bulb before I disassembled the shift console. Do you know the bulb spec? Pat Dailey

How do you change the light bulb for the shift console on a 1996 Subaru outback?

You start in the console at the bottom of the storage tray. Remove a couple of screws there, as I recall, and lift the tray out. That should expose a couple more screws that hold the panel around the shifter. Take them out, lift the panel, and you have access to the bulb. Only tool required is a phillips screwdriver. I believe that it uses a number 194 bulb. Easy fix and an almost instant feeling of accomplishment.
