Instrument Panel Lights

After searching many times on this forum, I can't seem to get an answer to a question thats been bugging me for awhile. In a 2004 Explorer, what is the correct size for the instrument panel bulbs? The owner's manual just says "See Ford Dealer," which I don't really care to do. I've tried the guide on the Sylvania website, but the codes for instrument panel bulbs are only listed until 2001 (2nd gen only).

I'm just wondering if anyone has had to replace the instrument panel lights in a 3rd gen. Explorer and what size/code bulbs it needs? I've already looked at the instrument panel removal thread a thousand times, and that seems easy enough - but I'd like to know what bulbs to get before I unplug a pretty necessary part of my everyday vehicle.

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
