It did not seem to be a serviceable part but I'm sure it can be done. I think I'd replace the assembly though, seeing as how it controls the transfer case and fubaring something in there is not something I'm willing to chance .

The lights might be LED and those can be integrated to be unserviceable.

The bulbs aren't LEDs but Nissan doesn't sell the replacement bulbs.

A couple fixes:
- Buy a new knob assembly if you want to be suckered by Nissan

- Visit a local Honda dealer and ask for 3 miniature gauge cluster bulbs. Just bring the old bulbs with just in case you run into an incompetent parts rep

- Replace with neo-gen LED bulbs; but the LEDs must be smd(low profile) or else they won't fit along where it illuminates the 2WD-Auto-4wd/hi-lo options.

Its easy to remove. It does require removing the face plate on the stereo/hvac controls. You just have to be careful as there are (6)? spring like clips that hold the face plate in place. They can pop off and fall behind the dashboard and if you can't find it, they're about $5-7 each from the dealership.

Once you get the face plate off, you can access the 4wd knob; just press down on the two retaining tabs on the body of the knob and it'll slide outwards and unplug the harness.

You'll see the three screw-in bulb housings. Remove and replace the bulbs. As I posted last year, Nissan doesn't sell the bulbs. Just go to a Honda parts dept and show them the bulbs.

I'm just going to add a bit to primov8.. U have to remove the piece where the shifter is which means u have to unscrew the knob. Then u have to remove the two bottom panel, one from the driver side and one from the passenger side. Then u can pull that bigger piece out. Unfortunately that bigger piece is being held together by clips and by the sides that its touching.
