Push out DEF/AC/recirc switch from behind. There is a lever on the left side of that hole - push toward steering wheel and the heater controls will be released. Detach red and blue bowden cables by squeezing tabs, then finagle the wires off the control pins. Remove the wire connectors (note positions for re-assembly). The control assy should now be disconnected. You need to remove a couple of covers from the back, one holds a small motor and fan, the next covers the back of the PCB. There is only one lamp, 1/4 turn to remove.

Re-assembly is reverse.

Make sure you buy the bulb first as it is non standard. Hope I didn't forget anything.


Can someone please tell me how to take off the panel on my 1990 535i, i need to change the light bulbs behind there, is there a pic somewhere,
thanks guys.
