Woohoo! Fixed cigarette lighter...but need a bulb!

I was following some directions I got on this site to get to the fader control (trying to stop crackling) and when I popped out the ashtray holder, lo and behold, someone snipped both sets of wires leading to the cigar lighter and just let the BARE WIRE ENDS HANG FREE. They even left the socket in place! Well, it was a simple matter of crimping on new connecters and Voila! 12V! I tested the ashtray light and it's getting juice, so i need a new bulb. Anybody know where I might get one? Autozone? Pep Boys? Part #?

Bonus: When I re-connected the cigar lighter, my glove box light started working!

Last but not least, I'm sandpapering the terminals on the fader. Is there anything I can do to clean the inside (wd-40 was mentioned by someone earlier)? Or must I disassemble the fader to give it a good cleaning? While I'm at it, is there any way to clean the connector that the fader plugs into?

I would try some tuner cleaner (I bought my last can at radio shack).

Autozone had a Sylvania 2721 in stock. She lights up fine!
