I just completed mine with Radio Shack part# 272-1092, the package contains 2 bulbs with long wire leads (the bulbs are a little smaller than EOM but they work) and I paid just $1.79/pk. The dealer (Loman Subaru) quoted $4.29/bulb.The_Lizard said:If you get the new Subaru bulbs, they come with these sockets. The Radio Shack bulbs I got just had bare wires, but I could thread them in like mini Christmas light bulbs - except for the one behind the fan control, which has a socket too long for the bulb wires.

On my 2001, the center cover with the cupholder/switches/etc was attached with 2 screws in front and 2 in back.miker104 said:How do you get the heated seat switch out?
Yes there is. Search here or on USMB and there are extensive instructions how to replace them.Did all '98 Outback's have illumination behind the temperature controls? We recently picked one up and there is no light at all in the entire center console and the buttons don't really look like they have translucent symbols for the color to shine through.
I know I'm bumping an old thread, but it's on topic to my question.
