How does one go about replacing the bulb for the ignition warning light? I just broke mine about 10 minutes ago. i have a spare dash that i thought i'd just cut a replacement out of but there's no bulb in there, just the two wires-- brown/white and green attached to a silver fitting.

Doh, I got it. DPO had a mess of elctrical tape holding an incorrect bulb fitting. Now I know why he had the ignition light behind the yellow jewel bezel instead of the red one-- the red one's too small for his hacked in light. I can solder in my correct/spare fitting and get a new press in bulb from moss for $0.90. sounds good to me.

I think the yellow bezel is for an oil pressure alert light, correct?

The yellow is for the oil level. When it gets low it will start to come on. Mine gives me some advance warning when I turn the corner hard or come to a stop hard. Get the oil level topped off and it will stay off.
