Thanks Mac!



Thanks dude, I'll add it.

No problem man, when I upgraded my instrument cluster lighting I couldn't find the bulb sizes anywhere online. Ended up pulling the cluster to see what size. If I think of anymore I'll let you know. I agree, this was a much needed thread.

Anyone replaced the instrument cluster lights? i am thinking about changing mine to blue and just wanted to see is T5 was definitely the correct bulb for that. I've been reading past threads on CX and some use 75-x or 194s…just wanted to double check if T5 would work.

Quick question,

I haven't taken it apart to look yet, but the front lights. The turn signal being an 1157 doesn't make sense. The bayonet base bulbs are a relic of the 80s and 90s. I guess I'll pop mine off this weekend and verify that before ordering the LEDs

Sooooooooooooooooo "*Other than the 02-04 headlight bulb being a 9007." means that my 02 is the 9007 bulb correct?

If that is the case and the 9007 bulb is the correct bulb..

Is this just expensive or is it extra bright or something?

Or would going with this one be just as good?

Those bulbs come in single and two packs. I believe that's what you're looking at there and why the first is so much more expensive. Silver Star's aren't exactly brighter but the bulb has a coating that changes the "color temperature" to something that's a little easier to see, making them appear to be brighter. Keep in mind this coating also shortens the life span of the bulb due to trapping a bit more heat. I have Silver Star ZXE bulbs in mine right now and so far I like them. The bulbs are blue but when they're turned on it's actually just a clean, white light.

ugh.. my marker light is out.. I found this light info.. hope it is the same for 2007 X??.

how the heck does one remove that lightbulb??.. let alone get ones hand inside that tiny space?. The engineer who made that design, had to have a child size hand.. Gonna take long needle nose pliers to wiggle that thing out. I hope.. lol

" Front Side Marker Light Bulb Size: 194 "
I hope that is correct??

Should be correct. 194 is a small wedge base bulb. I've found with a lot of Nissan vehicles, expect to take the entire headlight assembly out in order to change a bulb.

THx, taking out the entire light.. holy crap. That is removing have the front grill and bumper to release all the tabs.. I had front grill removed, an all bolts removed.. but the lower bumper area must have tab or something holding in the headlight. shesh..

will try the long needle nose, on the driver side, Vs the passenger side is way tighter..

Thx. will go buy that buld tonight and do the long install this week-end. I hope for .20 minute install.. lol

Well they don't seem to carry the 3057 for the tail lights. I want dome lights to though so I just might go with them on that.

What I found odd with my truck is that my foglight bulb, despite that even my manual says it's an H3, it isnt, it's an 890-series bulb.

There was a transitional period in the 1.5 gen trucks where the fog light bulb changed from an H3 to an 890. Mine being an early 2002 has the H3 bulbs, I'm still unclear where the break point is but I've heard that the 03/04 guys have the 890.

Yes. Those should work though you'll have to replace the raw bulb in the carrier that is stuck through the back of the climate controls.

Ran into this with my X. When I was swapping out LEDs, the 168 and 194 are interchangeable, if you find the right ones
