Shift Indicator Bulb...Where to buy?

Where can I buy, need two. I pulled the old ones out I think they are 12V.

Part number is RTC6089...

Yes DAP has them and I think RN, but I am cheap and not paying 4+ a bulb unless they can't be obtained anywhere else....

IIRC they are the peanut bulbs and available from an autoparts store. I know this because I, get this, use the shift ilumination harnesses to fix the side light harnesses.

Thanks Ron. These bulbs aren't the same as the side light bulbs?

are you talking about the ones on either side of the shifter? You can get them from any auto parts store. Disco's have them too. They are also the same as the hella city light on the 4000's and the headlights.

You just have to pick the wattage that you want. Go with the lowest you can find. If you need me too, I can take a picture. email me at swold at pbcx dot com

Scott, thanks! I have already taken them out, I will just take the old bulbs down to the autoparts store and see if I can match them up.

Make sure you get the exact wattage as the originals. The Autozone ones I found that fit will melt your shifter plastic. The original LR ones are a lot lower watttage.

Bill, thanks for the heads up. Do you remember what wattage you used?

IIRC, doesn't the Owners Manual have a chart with the wattage of all the various bulbs?

I went with Genuine LR from AB in the end. It was cheaper than a new surround.

Thanks, I know AB doesn't carry them anymore. But I agree with you a couple dollars spent is indeed cheaper!

Try Rovers North they might have some. If not then Pacific British. PB are really good to deal with. I got a lot of my RRC stuff from them.

#194 is the most common bulb of this type, and probably what came out of it- however if you were to use a #168 or #161 (both physically identical to #194) then you could run into problems melting the plastic as the lower the number, the hotter the filament
