so basically before i put my new cop car cluster in i want to replace all the bulbs. figure i might as well so i dont have to pull the cluster back out to replace any if they burn out. they look like 194 bulbs, but they dont look like they are supposed to come out of the socket. figured i may as well ask before i break em. maybe my fingers are greasy.
If there like the 1st gen twist lock sockets there not supposed to come out but there are replacement sockets that except the 194 leds you can get im not sure if the 2nd gens would be 1/2 inch or 5/8 inch hole diameter though.
the bulbs come out (194 for the turns and dial illumination) (T5 for the cruise ..and the other one that comes out...IIRC that bulb is called 74 too)....wiggle n pull..use a towel..or your shirt ... I used a rubber pot holder to get mine out when I did it....
If you're replacing with leds.. get inverted cone, flat head(lightly sand the flat end), or 5050/smd leds.. dont get a regular round end led..it will give you hot spots, you need a led that's going to spread the light out evenly (the ones I mentioned above)
my temporary sig page..till I get time to make one! HERE
