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.

You have to step on the brake the brake-light switch working? Next would be the shift-lock solenoid which is part of the shift assembly. There is an access cover to allow manual over-ride of shift lock for towing purposes. On my 97 (bench seats) it is a tiny plastic cover near the shift never on the steering pop off the cover and press on the mechanism with a smal screwdriver (or key). This is so you can push the car with a dead battery.
