    You should be able to get them from any motor factors. they are the same as the small wedge instrument bulbs.

    I know what you mean. I had a brake light out, decided to buy one bulb and a week later the other side went.

    On a similar note I take it its best to get the bulbs and the like from the dealers since my centre console bulb blew and its tiny! Any idea what the part number for this is? (1996 model with standard heater/blower controls) Thanks for any help!

    Mine blew recently so i replaced the whole unit with a custom made LED one taken from an E46 BMW. Much better having an LED one i say but just got sort out the bulb warning on the dash with a resistor
