Default Bulb size?

My '98 SE has the courtesy lights in the doors.......you know where often times the plastic light covers pop out when the door is closed?? Anyway, can you tell me the bulb size and where I can get them?

Also, is there a trick to getting the bulb out, or do you need to have tiny hands?

Its a 194 bulb. However, some (or maybe all) of them are soldered into a plastic push and turn socket. My PA has the same courtesy lights in the doors, and they're all the push and turn. You buy the socket and bulb as an assembly. I've gone a bit on the cheapie side, and just soldered in plain ole 194'*, but i believe its a bit tricky, lol..

good point.
you could also go to a local junk yard and pull a few from junker bonneville'* or other like model cars.

and they probably wont charge you for them.
