Ok, I tried last night to replace the small light (about 1-1/2" in diameter) and I noticed that I had to remove the battery, intake, etc. just to get to it. Well I noticed on the passenger side that I could get to it easier. I just had to deal with the AC components. Well I tried to remove that bulb so I could match it with one at the auto store. Well I could figure out how to remove that bulb. Can anyone help me with either a description and/or pictures on how to remove and install them. I did do a "search" and went through all 18 pages of results. I only found people replacing OEM bulbs with Blue light style bulbs. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.

Personally, don't bother with one of the blue tipped or xenon wannabe's, they often are just higher wattage to increase light output that is really being masked by the blue color. That higher wattage can lead to overheating of the wiring.

Stay with an OEM spec bulb.
