I replaced my HVAC controls light with a standard 74-style LED bulb from superbrightLEDS. I have the square dash but have the HVAC panel from a round dash, so it should fit your newer dash.

Don't forget an LED dome light - world of difference, mine is slightly blue but still 3x brighter than a factory bulb.

Yes, very easily. There are multiple threads on the topic, but I think its 194s for the Cluster and 74 for the HVAC.

Don't buy the cheap shit. I did and every now and then I have a bulb that flickers. Its a similar effect to having a tesla coil behind the spedo, going bright and dim bright and dim.
