Default those little plastic dash bulb holders...

Where do I go about getting new ones of them?
My car doesnt have any!
Just a pair of holes where I can see they should be.
I cant even be sure what they look like, but the manual I have makes them look like a larger black plastic version of the same things the warning lights run.
Are these a standard product from an auto shop or should I look to buy them 2nd hand from a wreckers?

It seems dash lights are a common problem on the c900.

yeah i know what your talking about, i clearly remember driving with the interior light on all the time at night looking like a moron.

I had a thread about this a while ago going, and explained how the cluster lights light up the display, it is worth taking a look at.

PM me your mailing address Mr. Meat, and if you can't find any bulb holders in Australia let me know...I have a couple of spares I can send you.
They might even have bulbs in them too.
You'll owe me an Australian 'fridge magnet' of some sort HA
Good day sir -
HFD
