Map light bulb replacements


Recommended Posts

I've been trying to replace the two bulbs that are located either side of the centre overhead Interior light. Eventually locating a very helpful Youtube video showing how to unscrew the console housing via the 'glasses pop-open' compartment. I put it on here as prior to it's instruction, I could have damaged this fitting attempting to spring it open with a screwdriver had I persisted, before spending quite a while locating it's advisories.


However looking now at the method I won't be able to complete this quite simple job for myself as my right arm is paralysed. However before taking it to the garage I wonder if anyone can tell me what the bulb type is so I can take them with me for the fitter to swap over? I believe it to be an 8 x 31mm festoon type fitting as shown is this right? (see pic). I'm definitely going to go the LED route too so if anyone knows the centre console bulb type (in between the map lights) I'd be most obliged

Only a tiny matter, but at my advanced age I need all the illumination I can get ...

Many thanks,
