    image.jpg image.jpg Over the weekend I cut out a engine turned panel for my A/C controls. Man do I have a greater appreciation for making these, took forever. While putting it back together I accidentally pulled the wires off the back of the bulb (soldered in). There is no socket, just a bulb with two wires coming out the back and is held into the back side with a rubber grommet. After searching the net, I was unable to find something similar. Any thoughts where I can find these or something similar? Guessing this was a very low wattage bulb due to the thin wire size. The a/c system is an off brand Vintage Air-ish made in China unit (so you know it's good). Bulb is the diameter of a 15/64 drill bit.

    Can you just solder the wires back on?

    Looks like an aircraft 327 bulb.

    The wires were pulled out inside the metal cap and I can't get the bulb apart.

    jerry123 has it right. Vintage Air sells replacement bulbs with wires attached.

    So I went to eBay, Summit sales these with the leads which is the Vintage Air bulb supplier (Proline Replacement Bulb 20557 VUP). Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, guys.
