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.
