Hello all,

I'll apologize in advance if this question has been addressed before. I searched but didn't find anything. I'm new.

'05 G6 automatic. I've just bought it. Well taken care of etc...
Problem:
Center console gear selector light does not work. I began pulling off the center console, but the gear selector knob frightened me!
Does anyone know what kind of light/led/bulb is in there?
Can I access it without having to take the WHOLE console off? Can I get at it with just lifting the center console a bit?

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Thanks loads.

and haven't time to fix it yet.

Knob removal is easy:

Might want to look through these G6 how-tos:

Also, the Chilton's G6 book covers console removal.

I believe it's a single incandescent lamp but I don't know which number.

I got a light in my center console! Woot. Amazing how the littlest thing can make someone so happy!..... BTW it wasn't too bad getting the console off but getting that @#$% little light in to the housing! holy crap! First, neither Napa nor Canadian Tire carried the correct light. Then the dealer said it would take a day to order it! Like I want to put it all together again just to take it apart!!! So, finally a place called Car Quest had a similar bulb and it fit! Good luck w/ yours!

I've got no idea. Some tiny peanut light. But I'll warn you about settling for the old "close enough" size... which is what I did first. The first light fit the socket but the housing kept squeezing the light out. Lesson learned. I guess greenman knows the proper size...
