    Can anyone who has done this give me a bulb number? or where they got their bulbs. Ive went to every local dealer and parts store and I cant find nothing. Looking to swap my three dome lights and my door lights in my 98.

    Yeah I just found the thread on how to do the cluster. Im just going my dome lights and under the dash and doors right now.

    I understand i need 3 4211 bulbs for the overhead dome lights, but i cant find the 194 bulbs on the site.

    Re: OBS Interior LED Light swaps

    Here is the info I got from their site:

    WLED Miniature Wedge Base bulbs

    T3-1/4 (#194/168) filament bulbs found in many automobile and water craft applications. Built in current limiting resistor and diode to protect the LED from reversed polarity installation. 12 Volt DC operation.
    Replaces: 194, 158, 168, 12256, 12961

    Dome light is a 211 bulb. Then it should have two circular lights on each side of it, correct? Those use 194 bulbs.
    Under the dash, also 194. Doors...194



    Nice cluster, Hodges87. I have an Esky one also, I cleared the blue film though so it is white, will be doing red needles next.

    Yeah, rectangular one uses a 211 bulb, 42mm, I believe. The two, push button ones on each side are 194 bulbs, one each.

    Pretty simple, just unscrew the dash and pull it off. I take the lower piece off first, then the top one. The cluster is held by four screws, one on each corner. Just lift the cluster off once you unscrew those and you are set.

    Re: OBS Interior LED Light swaps

    Those bulbs are common so you should find them at the parts store and superbrightleds under the same number.

    Re: OBS Interior LED Light swaps

    will the 90 (x4) degree angle leds work for the license, door, and underdash, and glove box lights.

    or do I need the x5's with the wide viewing angle?
