Default Replacing '04 climate control lighting on lower dashboard

I tried doing a search on this topic and came up empty. If there's already a thread on this, please point me in the right direction.

On my '04, there appears to be 3 light sources from left to right on the lower dash in the climate control section. One on the left for the fan ****, one in the center for the cold/warm air mix, and one on the right for the which climate component is desired. The light in the center is out.

Having taken apart several Laguna dashboards, I was under the impression I would find some push bulbs that sat in a soldered circuit board socket. I was told this wasn't the case by someone familiar with these cars. He said it was a module with the light built in. I have not taken the dash apart yet.

Could someone confirm this for me, and provide with the official name of the part so i can order one? Better yet, I'm hoping there's a photo on this forum or elsewhere that shows the disassembled dashboard and what this module looks like. I really hate the fact that Haynes has no manual dedicated to just my model of Monte Carlo. It's as useless as a screen door on a submarine.

Maybe I should just go to a junkyard and pull one.

Thanks in advance,
Carl

Its simpler I would think to just replace the entire dual climate controls.
I just posted this same exact link to another member's thread.
But you can take a look at it also.
It's an ebay item, which is a decent price for it.

Thank you very much. A photo is worth a thousand words. I bought the component you linked to this morning on ebay.

Are the bulbs 12v. I would like to replace mine pretty soon but I think I like to do LEDs so i only have to do it once. Does anyone who has done this know if that is possible

Yes they are 12v bulbs - I wouldn't know the LED equivalent though.
