    I've changed the roof, boot and courtesy lights in my car's interior for LEDs but I forgot to replace the sun visor lights too. Does anyone know what bulbs they are?

    Also, should I have light that shows what gear I'm in (it's an auto) by the gear selector? Or does it just use the dash lights only to tell you what gear you're in?

    Oh, and are the steering wheel controls meant to be illuminated when the headlights are on? Because mine aren't!

    Thanks. :Smile:

    IIRC, the visor bulbs are 239 festoon 5W, but I don't have a 7th Generation anymore and the old memory isn't what it used to be.

    For the gear selector is number 5 what you're after?

    7th g T gear.

    No. 5
    BULB (14V 1.4W)

    I'm not sure about the steering wheel, but I don't think there are any bulbs in there. Happy to be corrected if I'm wrong.

    Haha! Yeah I guess we don't get a chance to use our sun visors much in the UK so it's easily forgettable lol

    Thanks guys. I'll look into this over the weekend when I've got some spare time and report back when I get a chance to take one of the old bulbs out. :Smile:
