Default Burned out Radio Display Light

I had the middle light for the display burn out on my 2002 SSEi. I tore it all apart and replaced the bulbs myself. Not the easiest thing in the world to do but only took a couple of hours. If any one needs to know they are small light bulbs not LED'* the backlight the display.

Could you list where you picked up the bulbs and the part number for other members to reference.

Thanks

I will have to go back to Radio Shack and check the part number. I tossed the box but I remember what they look like so I will go and check.

There are 3 bulbs with a thin rubber coating on them that slides off. I know that they were 12v bulbs but I will have to go back to get the exact bulb. I am glad I'm not the only one to have this problem. I really wasn't too hard to change but getting the wireing harnesses from the face to unplug and plugged back in was not a lot of fun. It took some time and a little bit of skin from the old knukles.
