Are the rotating control wheels for the temp. and fan speed supposed to be illuminated? Mine are not. Also should the window switches etc. be lit up as well. Thank you.

There are about 5 or six bulbs hidden inside the '82-'87 heater panel. The two right above each wheel light it up via a prism set-up. <br>When I service these assemblies, I replace all the bulbs unless any are really new. The filaments don't take much handling before they break. <br>1.2 watt bayonet style bulbs.<p>1986 is the year that the internal lighted window switches came out. You can retrofit them to earlier cars. They'll either drop right in from '82 on or you'll have to add a wire for light powering[a jumper wire] right at the connector for the window switch. <br>I modified my first Seven, an '80 733i to work with the lighted switches, since it had the really plain, non-lighted style. The original switch had no detent or raised portion for either direction, made night-time use very hard as you were fumbling around.<p>Keep threatening to modify my '94 Range Rover to accept a later lighted switch too.
