Default Manual Climate control - Removal

Can someone tell me how to remove the manual climate controler part from the dash?
My AC switch is acting funny and I want to replace it but was not able to take the assembly out to perform repairs. I could take the Automatic Climate control easily out from my other car by pressing the small botton on the bottom rear of the pannel by accesing thru the radio cavity but couldnt find anything like that on this one. I trid to push it hard out but doesnt look like comming out.

The dismantling was pretty easy except I got stuck trying to pull out the bulb. Is it built with the socket or do I just keep pulling? Where can I get a replacement bulb? Does kragen have it? Do u know what kind?

You need get to the back of the bulb make a 1/4 turn (counter-clock wise)then pull it from the back.

Along this thread. The automatic climate control unit has burned out. Is it possible to replace the unit with a manual climate control panel? If so, is it simply a plug in situation or would I be looking at rewiring the harness?

Yup back from the dead three years later. Was researching something else and ran across the question.

Swap MCC control head for ACC head ... my understanding is you'd also have to replace the plenum or air box as ECC uses motors on the flapper doors and the MCC uses cables. It also uses a different blower motor resistor, all in all not really anything that would be a reasonable swap.
