License Plate Lamp Bulb

Mine's out.

Is this such a weird one that it's gonna be dealer only?

I've also found them at the regular parts store. Seems like they only last a couple of weeks, though.

I've been wondering if there's some sort of LED replacement that might be a little more rugged.

Do you guys have a part number for those?

None of the Sylvania ones at a local parts store had the offset pins like my original one does.

I wonder if the dealer ones ae $10 because they actually last a while.

Mine is out and from the look of it it's been out from day one (assembly error). The rubber boot was split and inside I found much road grime along with the pieces of the broken bulb. My fix was to toss the whole thing and pull the wire up through the subframe and coil it up under the seat., which makes taking the license plate bracket off for the track 3-screw easy.

I might be able to rig somthing up with a couple of LEDs...
Jack; give me a hauler when the goods come in, and I'll bring my LED-treasure box down, and we'll make a bulletproof light on that puppy..

I bet mine's out too...I'll go check right now!

A pair of high output white LEDs in series with about a 200 ohm resistor should work fine .........4 years on the one I made
