Gearbox Illumination Light and a Cigarette Lighter Fuses (2007 Accord)

Hi everybody. This is my very first post in your community. I come with a rather interesting question. The light under my Gear Shift is dead, also my front cigarette lighter is dead. My first goal is to check the fuses for both of the items. But I can't find the fuse that answer's for my Gearbox Illumination, and I think I got the other wrong, too. But I think fuse #9 of the Interior Fuse Box is Gear Shit Light. I could be well wrong. Can somebody please advise how to fix those two?? Thank You

(Again Gear Shifter Light fuse and Cigarette Lighter fuse, all I need is to know which/where they are?)

Picture is there (the backlight for those latters P,R,N,D,2,1 when you turn the headlights on)

Thank You

Shift indicator is most likely a bulb...I would imagine a #74 mini wedge base.

Outlet, look for "acc" fuse.

Cig Lighter is fixed, thanx.

What do I do with the "Sfift Indicator"?

The trim panels should be somewhat easily removeable (not sure for Accord) The bulb will be in a socket that when twisted to the left will come loose. The #74 bulb pulls straight out from socket and is readily available at any auto parts store.

Thanx. So I need to buy a bulb #74? I really don't know how I'll remove this :(
Do you think/know there are directions for that, floating around the internet somewhere??

The outer trim piece around the shifter pops up. It can be a pain to pop. I suggest using plastic tools for removing trim pieces. If you don't you can easily damaged the surrounding area.

Hi. Thank You. Where can I get "plastic tools"? And which are needed? What do I replace the bulb with? What model is it?? I want to buy one ahead of time.

P.S. I fixed the 12V lighter plug. There was something there. I used one of them cans with air you use to blow stuff out from your computer keyboard, and some piece flew out of there.

To change that light bulb, to disassemble the console, do you think you or I can find any videos on this subject, on YouTUBE?? Thank You

Thank You for your help. But this video does NOT have anything at all to do with lights I need to change. But very thank you.

It shows you how to remove the piece around the center console! The rest should be pretty obvious!
