    ...Is there a way to get to the bulb for the a/c control? I can't figure it out!

    Get your kid to stick his hand up there, haha. On my '82 with the small cheesey radio I have I can just reach my hand up there and feel the bulb holder. Its a little black thing that you twist and it comes out with the bulb. On my '81 with the stock radio I can't reach. So you might have to move your radio. I think its on the right side, I think.

    I think was able to get my hand up there with the radio removed (space was cut for a non-post radio), and swap the bulb. If not, you can get to it by removing the whole plastic cluster trim, then taking the AC control unit out via 2 mounting screws, and swapping the bulb that way.

    It's a push-in bulb in a bayonet connector.
