dashboard lights for Nissan Navara D22 '03

Hie all, was wondering if anyone could help me with getting interior dash board lights for my Nissan Navara. I've attached some pictures of the light bulbs. I have been to almost every car service shop i can think of to try and get replacement lights for this with no luck. Any one got any idea's of where I can get replacement one's from. Thanks

It's a funny bulb. Nissan want like 7 per one to include the carrier.

I'm sure there either t1 or t5 I can't remember which though.

Re: dashboard lights for Nissan Navara D22 '03

I did quite a big write up on dashboard bulbs a while ago.
Since then I have been experimenting with various lamps and colours.
Who says I have too much time on my hands?
When I originally changed the bulbs there was plenty of evidence that the bulb holders had been getting very hot, so a short while ago I experimented with LED's.
IMHO I would get SMD type LED's (SMD=surface mounted diodes).
These are LED's where the light emitting diode just sits on the surface of the holder, without any perspex covering at all, this type then emit light over a full 180 degrees, and are perfect for dash illumination.
Some that have perspex lens' have quite narrow light angle, and will not work in a dashboard giving out just a narrow beam, lighting up a very small area, not what a dash needs.
Regarding colours. I tried red - no good at all, very little illumination, white worked quite well but then standard bulbs are white.
Then I put blue ones in, I think these are terrific, all the figures on the gauges were backlit and stood out straight away, even the clock and milometer showed up blue but to be honest were a little hard to read.
This experiment never cost a lot, I paid 1-29 for 10, x 3 for each colour of a Chinese chap on Ebay.
They are T5 by the way.
Last year I also copied Woz and changed the backlighting on my climate control to red.
It's a bit like driving a pimp mobile, but I like it.
When it gets darker I will take a photo and try (?) to post it.

you do know that those bulbs pull out of the black plastic holder and halfords have a capless replacement bulbs that are a little smaller but still work.

Still quite light, but you get the idea.
I have gone a bit LED crazy lately, changed the interior light bulb to a 12 SMD LED, and supplemented the standard reversing light with 2 9 LED worklamps, for no cost really interior LED 99p, 2 worklamps about 8, all from where else, China.

Re: dashboard lights for Nissan Navara D22 '03

Chris that's well interesting wat you did with the light bulbs, def will try out with the LEDs and D40-Outlaw I just realised that you can actually pull out, though they are really tight bugers to pull out of the black shell casing so I can def play around with the colours now and get one to work with current shell ... Very soon I won't be holding a torch light over the dash to see what speed I'm doing and revs...
