Default ECC Lighting problem

Ok, so the other night i went out for a little cruise and noticed that the light behind my fan switch was burnt out. Well the next day i was going to take the ECC head out but apparently mother nature was on her period and decided to let gallons of rain down, damn women. Well later that night on my way home from work the damn temp. switch light burnt out. My questions are what kind of bulbs are behind the ECC, are they replaceable or are they wired into the circut itself? I'm truely hoping that they are replaceable, but in the case that they are not if I were to go to a yard and pull one from another car would I face any problems just plugging it into mine? Thanks again guys

All the varous ECC'* I've pulled apart, the bulbs are soldered to the circuit board.

well i guess i have to take a trip out to the yards around here and find a decent one, will it just be plug and play, or will i need to do some crazy ritual to have it work? (ie. take it to the dealer so they can rip me off)
