Has anyone had to replace the gear shift indicator light in the console of their 850? What I am wondering is, does the panel where the shifter is pop out...or does the whole console have to be removed to get to the light?
Sometimes, the bulb falls out of the holder, so after you remove the center console, check to see if a bulb is present and if it's still working but not in it's mounting point.
The replacement bulb/holder number is 1363149-4 as Lee stated and you can only get it from Volvo dealerships or Volvo parts distributors (FCP, eEuroparts, iPd...). You can't find it at any of the car parts stores.
The same bulb is used for the shifter, cigarette lighter illumination ring and inside your armrest compartment. If you think you don't need the armrest and cigarette lighter lit, you can just swap one of the bulbs if it's still good.
VADIS is a diagnostic, parts and troubleshooting database for Volvos that comes on DVD. You can probably order one on eBay.
