Default 2008 Vue Gear Shifter Light?

Question for you Vue owners out there. I am driving my wife's Vue back from the dealer where she had the steering gear replaced (car only has 10k miles) and noticed that there is no light on the automatic gear shifter. Is this normal or does she have a light out. This is only the 4 time I have ever driven the car in a year and my wife doesn't know if there was ever a light.

Yes, there should be a light behind the letters in the shifter on the '08

Is it still under warranty?

I wouldn't have the first idea how to remove console around it. I still have a little over 2 years left on the original bumper to bumper, so I don't plan on putting a tool to mine for some time.

Yes its still under warranty. If its an easy fix I would rather do it myself though! I may just send the wife back to the dealer to see if they can do it while she waits.

It would be best if you let it be done under warranty. Since you're not even sure it ever worked it's possible there is a electrical problem or something more than just a blown bulb. Plus, if you try to do it and you cause accidental damage then you'll have to pay to replace any damaged part...if Saturn messes up anything in the process they have to fix it under warranty.
