FYI for the shifter bulb

For those of you that have experienced a burnt out trans shifter bulb, on a 13 to 16 Compass/ Patriot I have the answer.

The FSM shows a #37... WRONG!

Google search show N/A ....thanks for nothing.

When removing the bulb that is in the socket under the shifter bezel it looks to be a #74.....NOPE!

When actually it is an assembly socket and bulb TSD 74, which I actually saw listed on the teeny bulb under a pretty strong magnifier.

They are available as a Dorman replacement along with others. I lucked out and found an assembly in my array of (I should hang on to these... ya never know) parts.
Once I saw the actual picture of what I needed , it jogged my memory, so I went on a search and rescue, and actually found one!

Anyway, I thought I would pass this along, being I could not for the life of me figure out why Chrysler made such an oddball arrangement for a simple bulb.

Especially when the first few years of the Compass (round headlight) used a VERY common #37!
