It Does depend on the switch and it really is a fiddly job. I have managed to repair some dash switches but not managed the window switches in the doors. I didn't even know the mirror switch had a light in it! Possibly another challenge.
Anyway, when I have been able to amake a repair it has been using the little 12volt grain of wheat bulbs which have their wires soldered on. They are about 3mm diameter and I got mine from a local model railway shop. I think they are also sold as headlights for scalextric cars. Depends how important you think it is to repair the switch as the hassle could put you in a foul mood!
