Hi all.  I've got a FT107M and the meter light has just burnt out.  Are these difficult to find, and secondly are they difficult to replace?
I have the owners manual, but not a service manual, so I would also like to know if you have to remove the front panel to replace the bulb if I'm lucky enough to obtain one.  If the front panel needs to be removed, how difficult is it to remove and are there any hidden screws that I should know about?
If you wish to, you can email me at
VE7ABC@RAC.CA

Thanks all and 73..de.

Graham,

It's an 8 volt bulb It should not be hard to locate in the radio or get at, remove the top of your radio and look at the meter.  Now if you can't   purchase a bulb,  LEDS and a couple of resistors can do the job. Less than 5 dollars.

then there are led light kits on eBay the for CB radios, but think they are 12v for more money. truck stops may also have kits.
