I had the same problem in my 03 SE-R, so I know exactly what you mean. Yes, it's only the bulb, and it's a pain to replace. I waited about 6 months before tackling the job. You have to "pop" up the shifter surround (the part with the PRND21 on it), and hope you don't scratch anything in the process. Then loosen the plastic shroud that surrounds the whole assembly. You'll have to take out a few screws, if I remember right. Then comes the hard part. You'll have to prop up the whole assembly as high as you can, and then with some really long and slender fingers, reach under the assembly from the drivers' side, and remove the (tiny) bulb. Putting the new one in is not much easier. . Good luck.
