That's what I figured, but I've not been in there (yet). This 
was someone else's dilemma.

Someone else mentioned that, too. However, be aware that there 
are different wattages for different bulbs in the dash and 
auxilliary gauge panel (what we're discussing here). 

The third brake light bulbs are 2.1W. The green base bulbs in 
the dash are 2.0W, and the black base bulbs are 1.2W. The bulbs 
for the aux. guage panel are 1.2W, so the CHSML bulbs might 
not be appropriate, but surely there is a lower wattage 
equivalent out there.

John Larson had a good point about asking a dealer about 
supersessions. The aux gauge bulbs might be available (base and 
bulb together) from your local dealer.
