Default Instrument panel bulbs for '00 SE

Ok, so here'* the down-low. I've got 2 burnt out bulbs in the gauge cluster of my Bonnie. The first one is the illumination bulb at the top left of the tach. I'll probably use one of the 2 working bulbs out of my stock deck thatí* sitting in my closet. They should be the same.

The second bulb that'* out is the one that illuminates the systems monitor and the outline of the car. That bulb is a screw-in that'* red. This bulb can be removed without dismantling the cluster.

Does anyone know where I could get one of these from?

I'm not looking forward to messing with the needles. But I think it'* the only way to get to those dumb soldered bulbs.

Any input is greatly appreciated!

You could try someone like United Radio Service. I'm not sure if they can sell parts like that or not (because of contract restrictions). I know when I tried to purchase similar items from York Electronics in Canada, they told me they weren't allowed to sell them because of their contract with GM. I know United Radio Service repairs clusters though so worst case you can send it to them for service. They're based out of East Syracuse NY. You could also pick-up a cluster off eBay to either swap with or take parts from (kind of expensive option though).

I don't know what happened, but when I tested the bulbs in my stock stereo face, all of them except one display backlight bulb is burnt out. Don't know the reason for that, but I guess now I need to get some of those bulbs too.

Well, I'm not having any luck finding replacement bulbs. Would anyone have an idea where I could get some?
Thanks
