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
