The fog lights on the 00-02's are H3
on the 03-04's they're H1

Also of note:

The headlight bulbs are 60/55W
If installing higher wattage bulbs, it is highly recommended to upgrade the wiring harnesses.

I just wanted to make a note that "rearview mirror (2) - 194" is incorrect for early 3g. I have a 2000 and ordered 2 194's and they are not what is needed. The bulbs needed have conductors on both sides of the tube which is the light. Im not sure what the correct bulb # or size is.

I'll try to check on the sizes a bit later... but what kind of Eclipse do you drive? Spyder, coupe with sunroof, or coupe without sunroof?

I drive a coupe with sunroof. If you know the size that would help a lot! thx.

btw, (http://autolumination.com/festoon.htm) this is the site Im planning on getting them from since I bought my interior blue size 74 LED's from there when I changed it out. So one of those should be the correct size. im just unsure which one. :confused:
The easiest way to check would be to go to your local automotive parts store (Autozone, Pep Boys, Kragens, etc.) with your bulb, and compare the sizes... That's what I'm going to do when I have some time, since the owner's manual only says "4CP," which is not very useful in trying to order online.


And since there seems to be some discrepancy on the sizes, can anyone with a 2001+ Eclipse please check your bulbs to see if the 168 Wedge Bulb or 194 bulb fit your dome lights?

Anyone know what sizes bulbs are used in the sporty gauge cluster that illuminates the individual gears (1-2-3-4) My #4 is out and I'd like to have the bulb in hand before I pull the cluster out.

My clock pod bulbs and the cubby hole bulb for a 00 Eclipse GT Cali Spec Manual w/ Sunroof were size A37. I bought them from http://www.dav-electronics.com/products.htm . They're supposed to be direct replacement, but I had to file the circuit board a tiny bit for perfect fit. *was looking at wrong bulbs (the one for AC and another smaller one, instead of the two accessed by the back)* Hope I helped.

I also have a 2000 GT with sunroof, the stock bulb is 214-2 in the rearview mirror. You should be able to find replacements for those easily... :eek3:
