    Its a festoon bulb type anything between 30-40mm should fit. I bought some from www.ultraleds.co.uk until they blew i didnt have a problem with them. I went for volatage regulator 9 led bulb but am gonna probably try something else next time. Maybe the once piece metal units which will handle up to 18v.

    got mine from halfords, it's not the one they recommend in the book (i found this out after trying to fit it, heh)

    makes it easier to open the boot and change it standing up, (two philips head screws iirc on the light casing) and walk into halfords with bulb and just gauge it by eye next to the one's in the shop, sorry i dont know the code as i dont have the box anymore, but its easy enough to change over/find the right one :sm4:
