REPLACEMENT BULB FOR AN ON BOARD COMPUTER FOR A 1995 318i Convertible

I need to find a replacement source for a 12 volt 1.2 watt light bulb that is used in an on board computer on a 318i convertible. 1995. It is an "all in one" unit that twists in. See attached. None of the local auto parts places have them. Auto Zone, Advance, and NAPA. Can I find them without going directly to BMW?

I think I found the bulbs on line....they are the same as dashboard lights and can be bought at various sites that market BMW dashboard lights. Thanks if anyone was out there researching.

Daz,

On my OBC it is a bulb that needs replacing. The unit requires 2...one that lights up the temperature window and one that lights up the clock. I will replace both of them. $1.50 each on line. Unless I screw it up I will be able to fix it in about 10 minutes. Thanks for everyone's feedback.
