Default 2001 SSEI Instrument panel lights

I just bought a 2001 Bonneville SSEI. I traded in my 2000 GTP because needed a 4 door, and found a really nice 01. The only problem with the car is one of the bulbs that back light the speedo is out. It is the one between 75 and 120. Do you know if that is an LED, or if it is a regular bulb. In the GTP I had a problem with the DIC light burning out, and it was backlit by a regular bulb. Thanks for all of your help.

looks like DS33, incandescent

be VERY careful taking apart the cluster. What tends to happen is when you try to pull off the needles, the metal pin that connectors it to the motor, pulls out of the motor. It does not just push back in at that point. That is what happened to this cluster below. Turned it into junk.

I got the cluster apart and I found the bulbs that are bad, but I can't figure out what the model of the replacement bulbs are, and where to get them. It is the incondesant lightbulb in the 232 slot. If you can help me, I would really appreciate it. Thanks for all of your help, and the pictures.

Sincerely,

PPOWELL1983

I don't see a 232 slot.. I thought we discussed it was the DS33 slot.

If you take your bulb into RadioShack you should be able to find a match.

Your right, I mistyped. It is the DS32 slot. The closest thing I was able to find at radio shack was a 12v 50miliamp bulb, but it is smaller, and considerably dimmer. It looks the same just smaller. I did not know if you had any other ideas.
