Posting this for reference. Maybe someone else will want the lights inside their switches on the dash to actually work.
Fog light switch has 2 bulbs (pictured below). They're both T1-1/4 wire terminal bulbs with a C2F filament. I found them on Arrow.com for about 65c each, with free shipping. JKL is the brand, 8640 is the number. click

There are two bulbs INSIDE the rear defroster switch as well. You have to disassemble the switch entirely to get to them. I both are T1 wire terminal bulbs with a C2F filament. This same bulb also fits the center console switches, if you have any. (Sport steering, Eco/Pwr) I found these on arrow as well. JKL 8111. About 2 bucks each. Expensive little buggers, comparatively speaking. click

They're pretty easy to replace. Just unwind the wire terminals from the rubber receptacle plug and pull the old bulb. Then reverse the procedure with a new bulb for installation.

And a few photos of the process. The bulbs in the defrost are a bit different from one another, but the part numbers mentioned work fine.

If only there was a like button...

After reading this I checked my switches and my defrost switch wasnít working. Is this the samebulb behind the hot/cold selector dial?

I highly doubt it is. I just replaced one in the L/R Recirc/Fresh selector bar, and the ashtray in mine and they were a standard wedge bulb. These wire terminal bulbs are entirely different.
