Default Interior Light Question

Hi there!

About a week ago I purchased a 1992 Pontiac Bonneville SE. The cover for the lights on the passenger side door panel had fallen off. Before I had a chance to glue it back on, one of my friends stuck their hand in there and now the socket and bulb fell into the door. I'm not sure how he managed that since it looks like it clips in and turns.

I don't want to have to go through the trouble of removing the door panel for a small and inexpensive socket and switch, however after searching the Intarwebs for a while I haven't been able to find that piece. I'm still not even certain what bulb number it is. D:

Would one of you be so kind as to point me in the right direction? Better yet, can anyone suggest brighter, possibly colored(?) replacement bulbs for under the dash and in the door panels?

Thanks so much for any help you can offer. =)

Eddie

Hrm...

I think I may have found where they are:

Still not sure which one would fit, though.

I was more talking about the thread on this forum... not a problem not though, already found the bulbs I needed at a local parts store and switched them out. Only spent 12.97 and now every light in the car is red/orange. Cheap mod that makes a huge differance in the interior look of the car.

Door panel wouldn't be necessary.

At the back edge of the light is a small indented area where you use a pick to release the clip and the light pivots out from the back.

Hey,

Thanks for replying.

I noticed that right away and pulled it out, expecting to find the twist base and bulb right behind it -- wasn't there. Got a flashlight, looked around, stuck my finger in and felt around -- nothing. =( I'm guessing it fell behind the insulation.
