I believe the stock part number is 2452MFX6.
The generic base size is B8.4
I suggest you go to Superbrightled.com website.
Lots of information. I used their LEDs in my 02 L300 instrument panel.

Unless they come with this option your best to contact GM parts store and ask for the correct replacement bulb. LED replacement should only be a DIY at your own risk. This model is far too old to be retrofitting now. So do the right fixes first.

I have replaced all bulbs, interior and exterior,
in my 2002 L300 with LED's without a problem.

Default Re: Lw200 cluster bulb size.(...the old bulb trick?)

hi russet and ibran- read this intriguing thread on led bulbs for the cluster and elsewhere in our L series jalopies. more precisely is there a load sensitivity , wire metal interference or computer peccadillos here?. so far no problem with my 01 L 100 in this area even after 20 years and almost 200k miles. no bulbs out in cluster so if it aint broke dont fix it. but want to be prepared. figure it will be a hand shredding event with a few clusterf@#$ks removing and reinstalling the cluster to access the bulbs. have replaced bulbs in taillights, headlights , dome light and 3d brake light. any warnings or further thoughts on rebulbing the cluster? thanks tons bob f

The cluster is the easiest to remove that I have ever encountered.
Remove a few screws and you pull it out the front.

^I agree. This instrument cluster is rather easy to remove. You'll need to remove the bezel first. To the best of my memory there are for screws which hold it in place. Once the bezel is removed there are - to the best of my recollection - four 10mm hex head retaining bolts attaching the cluster to the dash board structure. When pulling out the instrument cluster I found it necessary to pull the steering wheel tilt as low as possible to give it the necessary clearance for removal.

342,000 miles - Holy canolli!
Biden/Harris - a done deal. Predictions, '21 -'25: a weak economy, a weakened military, increased terrorism and a greater RED CHINA. It would be good to be wrong.
