Are 00-04 instrument cluster bulbs the same as 05-07?

So a friend of mine gave me some bulbs from an 02 focus instrument cluster, he said that 3 bulbs light up the speedo and tach. Will those be interchangeable on my 05? If so I'm gonna put LEDs on them.

I just changed the Tach/speedo bulbs, (no leds cause I'd have to order them online) the hard part was finding ones that fit into the twist sockets. I tried all the sizes I thought could work from other posts I read here. It wasn't 73 or 37.. I ended up going with 2721 I think it was (I'll update if I get the correct size I purchased), they're just as small, maybe a tad bit smaller. They're plenty bright too. I only bought 4 as there are 5 bulbs in mine. The bulb that hasn't been changed is the one behind the fuel needle. Either way I'm satisfied now.

Also the bulbs and sockets for 00-04 are bigger than the 05-07 ones. From what I learned so far.

Maybe 06-07 does? Its weird how different an 05 is sometimes. But I also read somewhere that there may be 3 different types?

All the lights like CEL, blinkers etc.. those are soldered onto the board. I only saw 5 twistable bulbs in mine which light up the gauges.
