I need to replace the Odometer backlight bulbs in the instrument cluster of my AU1 Forte. I am unsure as to whether the bulbs are a one piece unit or if the bulb is supposed to be removed from the green holder.

Would anyone happen to know where replacement bulbs can be purchased as well as their voltage/wattage?

Thank you.

my memory has faded and icant recall if those ones come apart or not if they do the bulb will just pull out and you should e able o pick up a replacement from any auto store

Yeah I will end up at Ford no doubt.

I tried Repco but they said that they don't think there is an aftermarket version.

If they are the cluster globes they cost a fortune from Ford and im pretty sure they are only available from Ford. The alternative is to raid a cluster at your local wreckers. I did this for my EL, 10 globes for entry fee of $1.
