05+ gauge light bulbs

One of the bulbs burnt out on the RPM side of my cluster and I figured no biggie I was in the dash on my 96 all the time..

Head down to the store and picked up 6 194LL's that's what was in the 96 figured it would be the same in my 05...

Removed the gauge cluster with no issues same set up more or less, and low and behold I flip the cluster around and its All sorts of different...

05's have this little bastard bulbs and I couldn't get it out of its holster..

?? Anyone know what the model # is on these little guys???

are they a Dealer item??

And please don't tell me to search I have, here ,TRS, and ORR..

Thanks, Red

You can put a green LED in the switch in 30 seconds, its like a quarter at radio shack.

If your referring to the headlight switch, you don't even need solder. You just stick the leads of the LED down in the switch and it works. You have to trim one of the leads but thats it. Do a search on it, theres a how-to thread about it.

I have a sh1tload of those bulbs, as I have converted everything to LED. If you want a bunch of stock bulbs I will give you 10 of them for 30$, shipped.

The bulbs will come out of the plastic if you pull hard enough. I had to change a couple in my 05. They had some that worked at the parts store. They weren't exact, a little bigger, but they will work. I don't remember the bulb # I used though.
