i'm trying to figure out if i can swap these lights out with wedge base LED's and different bases that accept wedge base bulbs, rather than getting the ones that are no removable from the base.

do you mean like remove the bulb and throw in a bulb such as the 194? if so no that wont fly. the bases are way too small. And I dont know if you can remove the bulb from the base. But then again I didnt really try.

Kinda but i mean to use a 194 like bulb but alot smaller the number is i think 74 or a 37, but yes its the same type of base and bulb but alot smaller, the HVAC light base is 10mm round and the 194 is probably 15mm.

I hav store credit with an ebay store and he sells 74 and 37 style LED's but they are wedge base only, this is y i'm trying to figure this out cuz they would be free, except for the plastic base.

i think the bases would be too small and narrow to accept the bulbs

I know the link is probably here somewhere, but I just want regular bulbs. My climate control bulbs are burnt out and I need some replacements, but no one local has them. There's nothing at the local junkyard I can get them from either. Those I found are burnt out. So I need to order some new ones. I think they've the gray base. Anyone know a good place to find them?

- Bump - I still just want stock bulbs to replace the burnt out ones in my climate control, but I can't for the life of me find out what they are(the bulb model/#) and where to get them.

come on its on the 3rd page.. i think you should get them yellow since john said they have a blue filter.

SUPER BRIGHT LEDS - LED Lights & Accessories

Climate Control:

x4 4mm neowedge bulbs


**NOTE** Climate control unit has blue filters everywhere. The stock bulbs light up yellow. So yellow + blue filter = green light output.

Heated Seat/Rear Wiper Switch

x4 3mm Solder component neowedge bulbs ("Left" "Right" heated seat indicators, Overdrive off indicator, rear defroster activated indicator)

x3 3mm neowedge bulbs

Headlight Switch

x1 3mm solder component neowedge bulb (fog light activated indicator)
x2 3mm neowedge bulbs
x1 4mm neowedge bulb
