Default Odometer bulb not available?

I've seen a few posts here on the replacement procedure for the Vue odometer bulb. Problem is, I can't get a bulb. My dealer says they don't sell that part but will sell me an instrument panel for $450. Saturn Corporate seems to back up that story; I contacted them directly about the issue.

Has anyone recently attempted to get an odometer bulb from Saturn, and if so, can you help me get one, too? Or has anyone used an aftermarket bulb as a replacement? I've read the post on the Radio Shack 272-1154 DIY job and will try that if all else fails.

Thanks,
kegs

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

With the part number, my local Chevrolet dealer was a great help and will order the part for me. They said that part was a first for them and that the nearest one to me was in Enterprise, Alabama.

Thanks a lot for your help!

Sounds like they wanted to sell you a $450 bulb, or LED in the 2006 VUE.
