im not sure what the bulbs are...i had a box of them kicking around at the shop. but this is how you get too it...

-pull off the temp knobs and the fan and direction knobs..
-under the fan and direction knobs you'll see two phillips screws...take them out
-using a flat blade screwdriver carefully pry out the face plate....not that hard
-becarefull not to bend the face plate too much cause there are plastic rings that direct the light and one of mine is broken.
you'll see the little light...its in the middle..there is just one ligh..once you look at the back of the face plate you'll know why...

good luck
