Default Climate Control Light ID

2 of the bulbs in the climate control (heater) panel have burned out. I have taken it apart and can get the bulbs out but have no idea what ID these bulbs fall under. They are different from the dash gauge bulbs. Does anyone know what type of bulb goes in this part of the PT??

There's nothing in any of the books that list the number of the bulb your talking about. Do you have a Radio Shack anywhere in your area. They sell every kind of bulb there is and they can help you identify what you need.

I needed to replace two climate control lights in my 2004. Radio Shack wasn't any help for me. I also tried the local model railroad hobby store.
These lights (at least mine) are small bulbs with bare wire leads (sometimes called 'grain of wheat' bulbs). The leads are passed through two small holes in the plastic base and then threaded in a particular way so that when the base is inserted and rotated to lock, the wire leads touch the circuit board copper to power light. My old Mazda had similar bulbs.
I did my shopping at a local auto salvage yard; the counter man declined to charge anything.
