    Just pull the knob off, you can use a pair of pliers with a cloth on the knob, and the bulb can be withdrawn with a fat straw

    You were correct about removal ---- but it appears I need to go a little deeper as it the outer dial bulb I need ..but I see a nut which I assume if I remove will let the whole switch come out and let me locate the other bulb. Thanks

    Even when I remove the switch from the side that's lit and remove bulb from centre of switch ... the surround is still lit showing the fan speeds ? I think the bulbs I have removed light up the arrow/pointer in centre of switch to show where or what speed heaters set at.

    If you remove the 2 big nuts (1 behind each of the knobs) and then on some models 2 little screws on the underside of the wood by the radio, the wood panel will come off, then there are another 2 bults that light the outer rings you are talking about.
    (this is a w124 not w210)
