Peaty, I didn't try anyone but the dealer. The bulbs were different than anything I'd seen before. They use some clear plastic semi-fiber optics to spread the light around to all the buttons, etc with so few bulbs. Kinda cool!!! I know what you mean about getting spooked. I took mine apart 3 times before I went far enough to get it done. Thought I could save others the trouble by telling them to pick up the bulbs first. I had the panel out and got an earful from the wife cuz her turn signals didn't work with the emergency flasher switch removed! doh! The Subie guy said these bulbs fail at about 3 years. The new bulbs look a little different (read improved?)
Glad I could help!
