Re: what bulb for the 80/90/cq center console switches (fog, abs, defrost switch

Parts manual lists a 0.8W bulb, part no. 8A0 919 062.  I believe
they list this just for the trip computer switch.  I know on the seat
heater switches, the bulb is soldered in place and replacement
is a "fun" disassembly.

 Subject: what bulb for the 80/90/cq center console switches 

 OK, a bulb in the center consol switch in the CQ and 90 burned out, went to
 dealer, he sold me a 1.2 watt, this is the lowest watt bulb they have, buy
 it's brighter than the rest and the switch gets warm as a result.  After
 having it in there for 2 months, I went to take it out and the shroud that
 holds it in went from white to yellow (due to heat of bulb).
 Anyone know what gives and where to get the right bulb (1.0 watt maybee)?
 THanks all
