You can replace the OBC light with LEDs. Its just getting out the OBC that I don't wanna do.

oh ok, my deck comes out pretty easily.. the hard part for me was i wasnt really sure what screws i was looking for since it was my first time doing it, some guys told me the basic areas of where the screws are but it still took me a while to figure it all out and get everything out... i managed to replace all the bulbs i needed to tho, so that worked out nicely but i just need the obc light now and a defoger switch with a working light and my inside will be good as new

Those bulbs are available at most auto parts stores. They likely wont be in a package on the shelf, I had to ask for them.. They had a tub of them behind the counter. I think they were like 29 cents each. At that price I just replaced every single one in the car, wont have to worry about them burning out for a long time.
