Light in center console out

Post by marcusmcd » Sun Mar 24, 2019 6:26 pm

1996 850 wagon:

The light that illuminates the letters next to the shift lever has gone out. I cannot see where or how to open the center console to replace it. The manual does not seem to address it (at least not anywhere I looked).

How do I open the center console? I also have one of the switches for the mirror adjustments that probably needs to be swapped out.
