Post Bulb Size Chart

We need to start a bulb size chart for reference. I checked my owners manual and it shows you how to replace the bulbs, but doesn't give the bulb number. If you plan to convert to LED bulbs, or simply change the colors, please list the replacement bulb size.

So far...

Headlights: 9003/H4
Parking lights: 194
Turn signals: 7440
Fog lights: H11
Brake lights:
Rear turn signals:
Reverse lights:
Dome light:

Not all of the smaller bulbs have the size on them... And this list could be used for people who want to buy replacement bulbs before they go through the whole process of taking the old ones out.

I'll be installing Sylvania Sylverstars in the headlights this weekend, so I'll take a look at the other bulbs as well. Hopefully I'll have an update for the list. I would like to get LED parking lights, and chrome turn signals front and back to clean up the overall look. Subtle changes can make a big difference.

Are you sure that the Fog Light is an H11?

Anyone know for sure what the front parking and blinker bulb sizes are? I am hoping they are 168/194 wedge type bulbs because they have some nice aftermarket LED bulbs in that size. Also does anyone know what the interior dome light size is?

Just changed the parking lights. 194s fit perfectly.

Front turn signals are 7440.

Both of my arms are scratched up from sliding them inside the fender to swap the bulbs. The made the bulbs really hard to get at, but I got it done in 20 mins. All clear up front now with Silverstars, looks much cleaner.

Did you turn the wheel completely in one direction then undo the clips holding the fenderwell splash guard?

Yes.

At first I took off two clips from one side, but realized you only need to take off one clip. And once the wheel is turned in either direction, you can reach the bulbs on both sides, you don't need to turn the wheel twice.

I don't think

I got the 12000k Fog Light today and the LED parking light (Blue) , but the LED is not that bright as the reg. bulb. The only thing it looks so cool at night.

Just ordered some Osram Silverstar H4 bulbs for the headlights. These are supposed to be better than the Sylvania Silverstars you buy at Pep Boys. They are 50% brighter and last longer. My Sylvania Silverstars last on average 10 months. You can get Osram brand bulbs on eBay.

Clarification:
Brake lights: 7443 clear bulb or red LED
Rear turn signals:7440 amber bulb and LED
Reverse lights:7440 clear bulb and LED
Rear tail lights:194 clear bulb or red LED
3rd Brake light:7440 clear bulb or red LED

I used these numbers when I replaced all my rear bulbs with LED replacement bulbs. The turn signals required I add a resister to each pigtail to flash properly.
