Re: the little light bulb in the control panel...what is it? (Golfmk3_18)

you either have to replace the whole panel or vw actually makes a replacement bulb with a plug on the back that requires a little cutting to get the old one out.

bring to any autoparts store I'd bet they have it.

yea tried 2 already nobody has it, which is why i would like a part number or info before ordering a bulb on internet which will most likely not be the correct one

Your local VW dealer should have them. They're called peanuts. The bulb comes out of the white holder. If your local dont have them, try a Volve dealer, they are the same that they use http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: (Jman5000)

How much are these at the dealer?
I paid $1.59 for a bulb at radio shack which is not a direct swap and I ended up cracking off that tab that holds the plate to the dash
while forcing it back together. It does light it all up nice though. Radio Shack# 272-1141
I should've just gotten the smaller ones that are 2 for the same price since I now need one for my headlight leveler switch.
