How do you replace the shifter light in the center console of a 1999 Honda Civic LX?
The shifter light on the center console of a 1999 Honda Civic can be reached by removing the center console assembly. Loosen all of the proper screws and pull off the assembly. Once the bulb is visible replace the unit using an appropriate sized bulb.
1) Remove the screws holding the center console in place. *Note: The center console is separated into 2 sections: The armrest, and where the stick shift is. 2) Carefully remove and unlatch where the two pieces connect and pull the armrest section out of the vehicle avoiding the E brake. 3) Remove either the shift boot from the shifter OR take off the shifting knob. 4) Carefully Pull the section out and above the cup…
I haven't done it (yet), but it should be pretty simple - there are about 6-8 Phillips screws to remove the console and access the shifter - from there you should be able to find the receptacles and change the bulbs. (I assume you mean the floor shifter lights, not the dash shift position indicator lights.)
