    After all the LEDs I replaced in my interior. I forgot one set... The sun visors lights.

    Now I searched and searched for the bulb number for these and I turned up CJPonyParts who sell the regular bulbs and list them as being 466 bulbs. I haven't found anywhere else that confirms this number. And I looked that number up on eBay and I didn't get anything.

    I'm probably crazy for doing this but those ugly filament lights bother me so much when the sun visor is flipped down. I also didn't seem to find anyone online trying to do this. I guess most people overlook it.

    If anyone knows the bulb numbers or has any other information that would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm pretty sure they're festoon bulbs.


    Take them out and measure the width and height and then order some LED festoons that are that size.

    I've replaced mine and this is correct. 30mm festoon. They don't have to be an exact size as you can bend the terminals a bit as well.
