Default Climate control backlight half-out

Just after I installed my new headunit, I noticed half of the climate control panel (the left side around the fan ****) wasn't lit up anymore. (Unless I bumped a wire, I don't think the two are related, as everything still works fine.)

Does anyone know what kind of bulb this takes?

Well, I opened it up and took a look. It seems like it'* the same bulbs that are in the door lights, but stuck in a different housing that seems non-removable.

The gray portion comes off, but that doesn't seem to free up anything. Ideas? Really not looking forward to swapping out the whole unit or cutting wires apart.
