Dash / Console / Instrument Light Bulb Replacement

Hi

Can someone tell me what size bulbs I need for my dash/instrument panel ?

I have a 2001 Rav 4 that's in great condition (Like New) and making some changes to it , such as a Head Unit.

Anyway...

I checked several sites where I entered my car make and year ,but it only lists exterior lights and interior ceiling lights and such.

I wanted to replace the horrible dash lights since day 1 to blue.


I checked ebay but getting conflicting info such as 194 or 168 or T10 and I have no clue what's what when it comes to dash bulbs sizes.

Thanks for any assistance .

Been searching this site using the search function and it seems mostly corrolla and camry pops up.

Still can't find posts on 2001 rav4.

It's a good time killer when waiting a few minutes for people to respond to any questions I have. So far no question has been answered , but now I have a boatload of cash ..LOL

I did several searches on this forum and even used the search function in the master light thread and nothing comes up for cluster lights for 2001 rav4.

I even checked websites where you enter make/model and year and all I get is lights for exterior and interior map and overhead lights. Never anything for dash/cluster light sizes.

Very frustrating.

Remove the dash panel then the lights you wish to replace. That should make them easy to identify.

Guess that's what I have to do. I posted on 3 forums and not one answer.

I just hope the size is listed on them ,because I have to order them online. I even went to pep boys and they looked it up for me .but just like websites only exterior, ceiling and map light sizes are listed in their system.

Plus Pep Boys doesn't carry color lights for this car.

Thanks for your time ..appreciate it !

I've no idea, I'm grasping at straws here so my help and a quarter won't even get you a phone call. If you can identify the original bulb then you have a shot at a replacement in the color you want. Make sense?
