That's irritating. What happened to using regular 194 bulbs that can be found at any parts store? Why did the engineers feel the need to use specialty bulbs?

Is there a comparable bulb that can be ordered elsewhere that still fits? If I remember correctly, the SL gauge clusters used special twist-in bulbs that were hard to find, but someone found an aftermarket one that serves as an adequate replacement. Do we have something like that for the ION cluster?

My ride: 2002 Ford Mustang GT, 4.6L v8, 5-speed manual
Wife's ride: 2006 Saturn ION 2, 5 speed manual
Gone but not forgotten: 2000 Saturn SL1, auto
