Default Instrument cluster bulbs


Where can I get new bulbs for my instrument cluster? All I can see at night right now is maybe half of the speedometer... even the two lights that aim at the cluster are out. The local Saturn dealership claims you have to buy a whole new cluster, and the only place that could order bulbs was NAPA, so I had them order the bulbs their book said would match, and they're too big and the contacts are in the wrong places.

Any help is greatly appreciated

Ah, I knew I'd seen a thread about this recently - it just wasn't on spot. Anyway, on another forum, it was suggested that the little computer in the automotive lighting isle may list the bulbs. It was also suggested that the stock bulbs have a haze to them, and that replacing them with plain white bulbs may result in a better look (more bluish, the stock haze being yellowish).

Thanks a bunch man. The local Saturn dealer didn't show a part # for the blue base bulbs but I'll be sure to take that number to them.

I might have 5 lying around. I did a mod to my dash and took out the bulbs. I can't find a number on them but this is what they look like. Just cover shipping and they are yours all I need is your zip.
