In the last couple of months, my Z71 '04 Avalanche has had two of the lights
burn out on the steering wheel controls...(one on the right side volume
toggle and on the left side DIC toggle). How do you remove these from the
wheel? I'm assuming the bulbs are not replaceable, are they? Any advice? I
shudder to think what a dealer would want to do this fix. Thanks
Thanks....after some Google digging I was able to find an eBay store that
sells them (all four) for $72 and detailed instructions with pics on how to
remove and replace on two sites...Club Avalanche and another. The airbag has
to be disabled and removed so the wiring harness harness can be accessed ,
the controls pried out gently from the front of the wheel, and the new ones
installed then the airbag reinstalled. Doesn't look too difficult, although
the airbag removal concerns me, having never done this before. No doubt the
dealer would want 1 hour minimum labour plus likely 3 times the amount for
