Re: Heater control bulb ?
If this was a ‘70 thru ‘72, #168 bulbs were the wrong choice. #194 is the correct bulb.
People think they get that one extra candle power per bulb with no “catch”, but the truth of the matter is the 168s run much hotter, adding extra wear and tear on dash equipment.
As for the heater control bulb, it is a #1445. To remove it, you gently grasp the plastic connector and push to side to tilt it slightly as you pull it out. It has plastic tabs that hold it in place and you gently rock it out.
