    I have bought a few bulbs that are "supposed" to fit first one worked with a little tin foil then burned out bought some more off amazon and they are again too long..

    Are there any LED bulbs that fit with no modding? Preferably on amazon :)

    Thanks.

    white ones fit. I have seen some blue ones as well so they must fit also.

    Welcome :)

    What are the part numbers for the bulbs that you have bought so far? Could you measure the factory bulb? length and diameter of the ends, in mm.

    So basically you need a shorter bulb. You can bend the tabs in to account for a smaller contact diameter, correct?

    On mine, those brass bulb barbs broke right off. Seemed really fragile to me. I took some small wire ties and secured them to what brass was left lol. Of course, I had to remember be the whole dome housing to do that.

    You bet. Remember if they don't turn on to rotate them 180 degrees.

    I know what you mean, but I could see some people taking this and saying "I rotated it in the socket, it still doesn't work....." lmao.

    Yeah, that has happened. If you can conceive a stupid idea somebody has done it.

    When LED bulbs have heat dissipation foils they're probably going to be insane!

    But good to know they're working for ya.

    Which bulbs are in the sides of the dome light, with the individual switches?
