Dash Lights - bulb size?

Does anyone know what size bulbs are in the dash lights? The lights in my AC Control and Instrument Cluster are starting to go out. Looking to replace with Blue LED's. Just need to know what size to get.

Got this from another theread and should answer your question.

you need 3 bulbs (B8.5D) for the HVAC and 5 bulbs (B8.5D) for the gauge cluster

A link if you want led's.

Instrument Cluster and Gauge | LED Car Bulbs | Super Bright LEDs

Part # from dealer
Part#05013815AA for $2.35 each works good

If you don't have patience, dont do it!! Leave the stock color! I practically had to tear apart my dash on my 06. Its not worth the extra HP.

I tore my dash apart and could not get the lights to fit 1 of ten bulbs I bought worked but I also used a poop blab company going to try again when it's not 15 degrees outside.

I am in the process of changing out some dash bulbs in my 03 too. I count 10 in the instrument cluster and 3 on the HVAC control. However, the bases are different. Will this matter?
