on our 96 lx the light for the key on the steering column has stopped working . can it be replaced without a lot of hassle ? i`m not a mechanic and really don`t want to mess anything up , as it`s not my car . any help would be welcome .

take off the 3 or so screws that hold the bottom plastic piece around the steering column. it also snaps into the top peice.

then you'll see that the key light is twisted into the bottom plastic, twist it out and voila theres the bulb. it just pulls out. i think its a bulb #74. you could check the owners guide for the bulb number.

Just to clarify for posterity (and to up my post count), there are four screws: only two are the same too, but if I remember correctly, as least they're all Phillips. One's a machine screw; the other three are self-tapping.

I found that if i have my clutch depressed when I turn off my car, when I get back in the key light isn't on. But if I don't have it depressed the light is on.
