If you mean the cluster bulbs; fuel, tach, temp etc they are pretty small & have a wedge base. You can take them out of the special holder used only in the cluster (as far as I know).

You might be able to find some on e-bay, I got a couple for my tag, (but they are bigger than the cluster bulbs) there is only one back there so I used the other one in the cargo light by the hatch.
If you do find some small enough for your cluster remember you won't be able to "dim" them like you can now with the factory bulbs.

He clearly stated that the bulbs are behind the gauge cluster.

Anyway, to the OP: there's a user named Rocketman8060 on here who has swapped in blue LEDs to replace the bulbs. I asked him to do a write up for all of us, but I don't think he's gotten around to it.

It can be done, though. Just shoot him a PM, or maybe he'll pop in and shed some light on the situation.

welcome. there's a write-up in the how-to section on how to remove the cluster. pretty much have to take the dash apart to get to it.
my wife's 2001 has the same issue. i'm just waiting for warmer days to tackle the issue. sorry, don't know what size bulbs they are. someone here can probably answer that question.

oh, when you do get the cluster out, make sure you replace all the bulbs. don't wanna havta go thru the procedure again.

that's right you gotta take apart the dash to get the cluster out. I don't exactly what size the bulbs are but they are the wedge type, like this


like i said, i don't know the exact size but i'm sure someone can help with that.
