Does anyone have a picture of where the indicator bulb sockets are located on the fresh air blower motor controls for a 75 914? Just want to know before I become a contortionist to replace the bulbs. Thanks

There is one bulb only AFAIK
It is on the right side and only indicates that the fan is operating.
It does not illuminate the controls.

It pushes into a cylindrical holder behind the blue square.
It can be accessed without removing the knee bar.
There is another bulb holder on the left side behind the red square but there is no
wiring to support a light.
This is true of early cars... later cars ?

I'll go check on my '74. I thought there were two, one on each top corner.

Ok, first pic is my 74. Only one light as far as I can tell. But maybe I'm not working the controls correctly. The second pic is the back of another '74 controller I have. It has spots for two lights. Oh, this reminds me that I need to glue down the dash vinyl below the controls. It's been buggy me for too long!

By the way. The 2 arrows don’t light up. They are glow in the dark plastic. I bought a bag of plastic glow in the dark stars at a top store and cut out new ones.
