In the process of replacing the main backlight bulbs in the instrument panel a couple idiot light bulbs went out. It's not as obvious to me if the bulb and socket are separable with these smaller ones. Part for reference: goo.gl/gLaJtN. Does anyone know if only the bulb can be replaced, or do I have to replace the whole socket assembly? I'm looking for acceptable led replacements

They do make LED replacements as the bulb/socket combo...but I threw mine away. The fit was very poor. Think I ordered them from superbrightled.com

That being said, you can get those exact parts from NAPA for like $2 each.

I've had really good luck with my LED replacements and thought the figment was fine, you just have to make sure you are ordering the right ones. There's a pretty extensive thread on this subject in the Gen 2 sub forum

I think that the bulb is sold separately on that one (or at least some of them) and I didn't have to file or clip anything
