Wound the mini blue dash bulb be the one for courtesy lights?

Yes, it's the small eyebrow light by the cabin door on the port side.

FS-31-04-BLU would be the one under the rear seat.

Someone here should point out the obvious,  the CG only approves fixtures, not bulbs.  Therefore if the bulb is replaced with a bulb type not manufacturer recommend the light is no longer CG approved.   It will not matter until it does.  These are serious matters not to be taken lightly.  A friend put in bulbs, the super bright LED sounds better, however the color was washed out to the point it looked like a white light in the distance.  The lens was not made to diffuse LED light.  

 

Additionally the CG has a warning out concerning LED lights and VHF interference.  You should test to be certain the LED lighting is not affecting your VHF performance.

With the above said too....

I found it easier just to replace the hole fixture. Keep in mind, that there potted so the contacts or connections can not rust up.
