    Looking to switch out the orange indicator bulbs with the silver ones.

    Does anyone know the model of bulbs I will need and is it much of a job ??

    Cheers.

    I have fitted silver bulbs in the rear, unfortunately I don't know what code they was as I had some left over from a previous car. I have not tried the fronts as its too tight so would need to dismantle some parts first.

    Cheers mate. . I did check that one.
    Tried a few different ones and they all say something different.

    My brothers got some 582 of an old car so gonna try them ( it was a size that came up on some of the searches.

    Very strange... .

    Still finding both 585 and 582 as being the right size.... both of which are also labeled as t20.

    Tried the t20 582 and it won't push in far enough. Seems quire tight and didn't want to force it.
    Problem being I cannot find any 585 chrome ones and even if I could they would still be t20 so the same fitment. . . ?!?!?

    (Insert insanely confused smiley here lol)

    Hi Chris,
    That sounds familiar, I had a similar issue with my rear lights. I can't remember exactly but I don't think the bulb would push in all the way. It still works though so left it like that.

    Sounds about right. . Just mine weren't in far enough to get a comfortable hold. . Read someone had to open up the fittings a bit but to worried about breaking something.

    I actually gave up on that. And since tinting the the lights the orange isn't so obvious . Let me know if you do find some that work though.
