Hi all,,

anyone know where to get the tiny "twist lock bulbs" needed for inside the dash switches?

Thanks

Derek.

Funny - but the same switches (washer and bright) need bulbs on my car...

I originally tried R509TJBR but the base was slightly too large in diameter.

I R509TYBK "may" be alright but is slightly taller and may not fit all required applications.

I'm doing the same thing on mine. Maplins have the right size bulbs and in different colours. Fiddly bit is getting the bulb wire wrapped around the plastic holder. If you've got big fingers it could be tricky though.
