Dash light bulbs are ridiculousely expensive! Any alternatives? 900 1993

The solution is easy, and I've posted it before. Get some lamp holders from an earlier 700 series and butt splice them in place of the expensive Volvo lamp which has an integral holder. The earlier lamp holder has an easily sourced and inexpensive lamp.





Here is one of the late style in which I've installed an LED with w resistor to trim the voltage. The resistor can't be seen and is down inside the plastic socket.
