Those D*mn Little Bulbs!!!

An extra-heavy piece of my Uncle's fruit cake goes to Ray Calvo for the 
tips on bulb replacement for the seat heater switches.  An honorable 
mention must go to Joe Yakubik for the Radio Sh*t P/N for the bulb. (It 
was the _exact_ same bulb!)  Thanks guys!

Alas, the $1.20 sacrifice was not enough.  These cars are insidious. 
_Immediately_ following the replacement, the bulb on my radio display 
went out!  Prolly because I failed to use Ray's suggestion of taking out 
the radio for easier access to the seat heater switch.

This is the radio station LCD display.  Ray, I know you've been here 
before.  I searched my personal archives (all digests since #477, 20 MB!) 
but I could only find messages about the broken circuit board. :^(
Can you (or anyone else) share some more of your micro-bulb wisdom?
What I'm looking for is a bulb P/N, gotcha's to look out for, etc.

Yeah, yeah - I want to replace the whole system with aftermarket stuff, 
but I'm not ready yet (read: it's too cold outside to be rolling around in
the car all day - unless, of course, my girlfriend joins me ;^).
