Which bulb for fiber optic on 82SD?

Hi Guys,
Read all the posts but can't find what the bulb # is for the fiber optic octopus in a 82 SD. Its the tiny bayonet style bulb. Is it a Stealership item only or a Autozone thing. Any #'s would be appreciated. Thanks Mike

I don't have the number, but as I recall I was able to get a replacement at the local parts store for one of my cars. I just pulled it out and took it to the store to match.

The switches for the sunroof, rear defroster etc. are lit using a fiber optic cable. A bulb pushes into a junction and coming off that are 4-5 fiber optic cables (octopus) that go to each switch. Amazing but true

I found replacement bulbs for the ACC/fiber optic switch lights in my '84 300TD at the local Advance Auto Parts store. If I'm remembering this correctly, they are Sylvania "European Lamp" 2721 bulbs with 2 bulbs in a green package.

I got mine at Autozone. Bring your old one and match them up, then get the lowest watt one they have.
