Re: How to change the bulb(s) on the light switch indicator panel

Dear Packard owners, I have an issue related to the dash switch panel above the air ventilation controls on my 1950 Packard club sedan, 23rd series. The lights illuminating the light switch panel is no longer working. Could someone please show me where those bulb(s) are located to change them. I recently changed the heater blower switch and how you have to remove the 2 barrel nuts to move the switch panel to access the switches. I looked for any light bulbs and didn't see any (tight space). So any support or photos would be helpful and much appreciated.

Thank you.
G Durgin

A few years ago a poster who signed in as deskdriver posted a photo where he identified an item as the dash switch label light. I personally cannot confirm this is the case but unless someone else can provide more information you might check your car and see if it has the same setup. It looks to be well hidden under the radio and I cannot say if the radio or switches would need to come out to access it.

Most Packard dash lights used a socket having a flange that pushed into a hole in sheetmetal. To change the bulb the socket needs to be carefully removed sometimes with help of a small flat blade screwdriver because some can be quite tight. Sockets need to be removed gently and come straight out so the bulb glass does not catch on the sheetmetal and break.

Thank you, Howard. I don't recall seeing this. But it may be hidden by the radio. I'll check it out. If others have examples or photos, please post.
