Looks like the bulb is part of the switch.

Can you remove the bulb from the switch? If so, you might be able to get a bulb number off it. But it's not listed separately in the PET.

986 613 120 01 A02 for gloss black (up to 2001)

986 613 120 10 A05 for mat black (2002 and up)

Damn! I just looked them up on Pelican - $88 for the gloss, $119 for the mat black!

Might want to contact Woody for a good used replacement (forum member ItsNotaNova). There are also a bunch for sale on ebay...

(seems like a waste for a $2 bulb though...)

Dang - how often are you using your hazards? LOL

In my decades driving / owning cars I can honestly say that is one switch bulb I have never had to replace. Well, I did replace the bulb once but it was on an early 80's Mercedes and I only did it b/c I had an bulb left after refreshing all the other dash / switch bulbs.

Good luck
