The Subaru Forester has several lights on its instrument panel known as dash lights. The gear lever indicator light is one of these dash lights that allows the driver to see which gear the transmission is in. Replacing this light requires an 85066GA390-type bulb that can be purchased from your local Subaru dealership or online through Subaru's website.
