Default radio light bulb replacement

It has been mentioned in the past that bulbs are available for replacement, but no part number or vendor source is stated. Does anyone have the direct answers?

I don't know the part numbers, but I had the dealer replace mine before I bought it and it he said it cost them around $250. Just to replace a stinking light that in one year has already burnt out again. This must be a common problem.

They sent it back somewhere.

All it is, is a little light bulb in there. You may be able to take the burnt one out and search around for a new one that matches.

I haven't tried it yet although I do have several that are out. I seem to recall someone saying they were available at Radio Shack.
You might also try the electronics forum.

If you get the job done, please give us a detailed description of how to do it. I need to change a burnt bulb as well, but don't want to attempt it without first knowing how.

not sure how the new radios are, but I took a 98 chevy radio apart and the lights are soldered in there.
