Does anyone have a link or info as to where I can buy the autopilot buttons (grey with the green led light)?

Hi,

you should specify that a little more. Almost every airplane has other buttons and knobs. If I recommend you now for a Boeing, you may not need it because you are flying an Airbus or a Cessna. You understand?

Ok... Check out if you need Honnywell or Collins Buttons....
You can check in PMDG settings menu the 2 different MCP Typs..... Simply choose one and look on it in the virtual cockpit.

Honnywell have only a "check" LED.... Collins work with "Korry Switches".... Those Switches have a 2 Chamber system.... One is for Backlighted Text Label.... The other is for a Green Status LED and a checkerboard optic.

Buy those switches premade can be verry expensive.... Check out for Cockpitbuildersites. ( Hispapanels e.g.)
Alternate is to buy switches with other optic ( Maby problematic if you use a premade Panel whre holes are already drilled) .
Other alternate is to build the switches DIY.... Witch good tools (CNC Machine 3D Printer) you can do this perfectly !
Good Luck !
