194 bulb...

Super Bright LED's dot Com has an oversize LED bulb that works great in my sidelight.


It did not work so well in my front end, the vibration was too great...

I've been using these for about a year now in my 2009. No issues, plenty bright.

If you open the door and look into the front fender through the gap at the front of the door jamb (from the inside) you will see a small tab on the light. press that and the light will pop out of the fender.

And be very careful because the tab breaks really easy as they become brittle. I have mastic holding one of mine in now.
