take the little cover off and move the shifter to about D or N and youll be able to pull the tiny little bulb out. then go inside the auto parts store youre parked outside of and buy a pack of two for next to nothing. the light bulb moves with the gear selector and lights up only the gear youre in. should take less than 10 mins total.

be careful

Be careful when changing that bulb, It's a bit tricky getting the bulb back in place...
I broke my wire retainer clip trying to change my bulb>>>
