Default Dash lighting

I have a 2001 Frontier and im looking to upgrade the dash lights to a brighter LED, including the climate control panel. The current bulbs are so dim its sometimes difficult to see even at night. I also need a new blub for my floor shifter too. I am trying to figure out what socket type is needed for these bulbs. I have heard on other forums of possible different types of plugs for both panels. I heard about a series 74 style plug for the instrument cluster and some kind of twisting locking socket type for the climate control panel. I have not been able to confirm the types anywhere. I'd like to be able to find out what they are without ripping apart my dash first then having to do it again to install them. I found numerous types of blubs that may work on superbrightLEDs.com but I am trying to confirm what type I need. Can anyone help me find a source that can confirm what is needed?

The floor shifter bulb should be a #194. The bulbs in the heater control head are special type bulbs and I believe you can only get them through the dealer; part number is 27679-7Z400. The cluster has three different bulbs in it (1.4W, 2.0W and 3.0W). #168 or #194 bulbs are commonly used; not sure what the other two sizes are off the top of my head. Refer this link:

oh thanks a lot SMJ999SMJ!! I was beginning to give up hope on anybody knowing. Do you know of any place I can look to find out for future reference or other details about the instrument lighting? Or do I need to look for a manufacturer that makes the parts for the instrument panels?
