2002 climate control light not working

My center controls is hard to see at night because there is no light. Seems like the bulb in AC/ climate controls are out. How do I take off the center plastics and change the bulb inside if there is one. Anyone had done this issue? Is there a thread on this already I apologise. Thanks in advance.

I guess the bulb or LED is enclosed in the plastic. Thanks moderator.

Just to update, you CAN replace the backlight in the climate controls, at least on my 2002 you can. I got 2 incandescent bulbs from http://autolumination.com/74.htm. They are neo-wedge bulbs and come in various colors. I got the blue to try and stick to the same color as the bulbs that I was replacing. The downside is the replacement bulbs are shorter in the shaft than the bulbs being replaced. I am about to buy another set in the LED style to see if I can improve the brightness (right now it's quite dim). But it's better than dark.
