Thanks so much. This helps a lot. Can anyone tell me where the light bulb is?do I have to take off the white backing to change the light?Mike, try this post to get the lower climate control dash out. Cradit to Lovemysantafe...
Also here is the last climate control bulb thread...
The tiny bulb you are looking for is a 97322-33100. In this illustration the bulb is identified as 97322A.

Ok. One more question. The middle fan light works, the ones that show where the air blowing on the left, and the right one for the temperature are out. Are these bulbs the ones that you are speaking about? Or are those two in a different position? Thanks againMike, the bulb fits right into the back of the HVAC fan switch. The pigtail to power the bulb plugs in next to the switch. You can tilt the panel forward and twist the bulb holder to remove it. It fits pretty tight in the back of the switch so I used needle-nose pliers to rotate the holder ninety degrees. The bulb is a wedge style that just push fits into the socket. Once you pull the lower dash panel loose it will make sense.

Installed 4 new bulbs, they work, got them here 4 Dash Bulbs for 01 02 03 04 Hyundai Santa FE A C Heater Climate Control Light | eBayI got only so far (see pic) when attempting to change the bulbs for my auto climate controls. I tried lifting both clips on top and bottom, and pulling on front, not moving. How do you get access to replace the bulbs?
I did some more searching and this is the part number for the auto climate bulb,
Best to replace them with LED bulbs. I got mine from ebay seller warden_jp2002: 10pcs T4 Tall Neo Wedge Dash LED Bulbs Green 79670 SL0 A01 | eBay.well have you ever seen one of these? These little things are the illumination for the background of the knobs for selecting hot and cold as well as where the air is going. My dealer ship has not one clue. Obviously a salvage yard has one. Any thoughts where to get these?
