Post GM steering wheel audio control buttons

I have a 1999 Grand Prix GT. Recently the lights went dark inside the steering wheel audio control buttons on both sides.
They still function perfectly otherwise. I checked the fuses near the glove box and they were good.
Is there anything else I should be checking or do the lights in these buttons have a tendency to just burn out?
How easy is it to change these buttons? I'd prefer to have them lit if at all possible since I drive at night most of the time.

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Quite often, we see this problem. The bulbs/led's inside the switches go bad. And that means you have to replace the switch since those bulbs/led's are non-servicable. On your car, I beleive they just push into the steering wheel. So you will need to "dig" them out with a pocket screwdriver, or a small screwdriver. Be careful when doing so, so you don't damage the appearance of the steering wheel.

How easy is it to set off the airbag while trying to remove the buttons?
