I'll have to run to CT before they close today to grab a blub.
According to the really useful Sylvania replacement-bulb lookup website at http://www.sylvania.com/auto/carapp/ you need a #1156.

Yea I looked it up in the techinfo and I went to CT to get the bulb.
Had to goto two CTs... the first one they were all out of ther 1156, they had 6 pegs for it, and they were bone dry... popular bulb I guess.

I've just been too tired/lazy to crawl in the trunk the past few days to replace it.

When I had to replace mine, I laid down in the trunk (back on the floor of the trunk, looking up) I think that it was alot easier to do it that way rather than trying to reach into it and grab it....

Maybe that is the real reason they added those glow in the dark trunk opening latches....

Yea that'* the way I did it... man... you guys weren't kidding about that black gunk stuff.
However when I did get in my trunk I noticed that my back was wet, I have a leak in my trunk.
