Default Gauge Cluster Bulbs

I've got some bulbs out in my gauge cluster, does anyone know how many thur are total? If I'm gonna pull the cluster out I may as well replace all of them. Just looking for a total bulb count, tach, speedo, gas gauge, temp gauge, and needles before I order them.

What year PT..??
G1 PT's 2001-2005 have 6...
My 2006 doesn't have any replaceable bulbs, so I assume that is also for all G2 PT's 2006-2010.

Lightbulb Re: Gauge Cluster Bulbs

There are 6 bulbs in the cluster,plus 1 each in the turn indicators above the cluster,for a total of 8 bulbs needed to do a complete bulb replacement.......Sure as shootin' if you only change the bulb/s that are out you'll have to do everything again for another burned out bulb in a few days/weeks/months.(better to replace ALL bulbs while your in there!)
Just in case your not sure,the stock replacement bulbs are #PC-74 wich are the bulbs + a new base....But,you can get #74 bulbs by themselves,and just re-use your original base(just pull the old bulbs out,and insert the new ones!)
I myself,and a couple of other members replaced our stock #74 bulbs with #2723 bulbs,which are the same exact size as the #74 bulbs,but actually 2X brighter,and even last longer.
If thinking of going with LEDS;A few have had good results,but it seems more often some have had poor results,resulting in dark areas within the cluster itself.
