Windshield washer fluid indicator and fan control light not working

Can someone help me figure out how to access the windshield washer indicator bulb and the climate control fan bulb on a 05' element please? I already checked the fuses, looks like the bulb is out, not sure how to access it and what bulbs to get for these 2.

The washer fluid indicator not coming on is likely due to the sensor in the bottle failing. Common issue with Hondas.

In regards to the fluid indicator, when I turn my key on, all the lights come on before they disappear but the fluid indicator light never comes on, that should mean there is something wrong with the light, correct?

Anything is possible. But as I said this particular sensor has a history of failure.

Washer fluid bulb

I will have the sensor checked.

Let's say it's the bulb that's faulty, how would I get access to it? and how would I change it?

IIRC the warning indicators (as opposed to gauge lights) are LEDs soldered to the circuit board. Not a simple repair.
