I assume these are the heated seat switch bulbs you're referring to. I have a '98 and if you lift up the arm rest there are 2 screws you need to remove. The console trim should lift up at that point exposing the switches. Disconnect the wiring to the switch. you should then be able to remove the whole switch from the console. You'll then need to carefully pry the top of the switch btton of the switch assembly. The bulb is wired into a small white rubber boot which you can pull off. Pay attention to how its wired into the boot when you replace the bulb. Hope that helps.
