Replace both. Any 880, 885, or 893.

What year is the car? 95? I think the 885 is stock, it replaced the 880. The 893, if memory serves, is 5W more. But still a direct fit. Don't quote me on this, but I know they'll all fit.

The wattage on the lights in either 96 or 97 decresed to 37 from 50, so you may have to upgrade the fuse depending on which lamps are stock. What'* the owners manual say? Steve posted links to a few online if you don't have one.

nope, first off, a rock took one of hers out. second off, the insurance company nabed mom'* ride. they gave her $4,482.05 for it. she just rebuilt the tranny to the tune of $1,700 and the A/C for $1,000 and new tires for $430, so you tell me, fair or not? the tires had no wear on them, as in same tread depth as when they were new... the tranny was replaced with a reman one 7k miles ago...
