I've purchased many electronic components (including the LED'* for my nav unit backlighting conversion) from DigiKey. They have overnight air freight for about $6.00 and orders can be placed online. You'll have to look through the catalog to see what you want.

You may also need to change the current limiting resistor as well.

If your traction control switch is the same as mine, the two LED'* on that board are different. The one which you've circled is the traction on indicator and the shape of the lens is different than the one for the backlighting (which is flat and projects the light differently). Your original post didn't specify if you were trying to change the indicator, backlighting or both. Not that it matters in your case, but the two are also different colours. Here'* a profile shot.
