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?

I'd suggest you look for LED equivalents as replacements.

I can't say for certain if the bulbs in the Spyder's rearview mirror is the same size as the coupe's, but if they are, I'd get the 44x10mm one from SuperBrightLEDs. I have the one from V-LEDs, and it's a little bit small (the largest they sell are 42x10mm).

Take out one of the festoons from your rearview mirror. There should be a number on it. If it's 214-2, then it's the same.

few questions

1)is it worth it getting 4,6,or 9 LEDs for my gauges, or will a 4 LED be bright enough?
I haven't changed the gauges, myself, so I can't say for sure, but considering the area they're supposed to light up, I doubt you'd see much different between a single LED and 4 LEDs.

9 LEDs are not available for 194 replacement--it would be too big. It is for the 921, however, which is used for the third brake light. But the angle would not be wide enough for that. I don't think even the 12 LED 921 replacement has a wide enough angle. (I'd recommend a "super flux" style LED replacement bulb for the third brake light, but it's actually just slightly bigger than the hole would allow--I had to file down the corners of the LED to squeeze it in.)

2)Is the cubby light on all the time? i ask because i just noticed i had one and its blown(black) for sure cause i never seen it on. and it looks like it has a mini condom over the bulb.

3)what's da mini condom for?
It should be on when you turn your lights on. I assume the plastic cover is there to diffuse the light. If you replace it with a white LED, don't bother putting the cover back on (it'll turn the light yellow).


As for the rest, I don't know.

The ??? has no bulbs. It's just a reflector. The rest looks right to me.

Depends on the year of your car. The festoon is what I used for my 2000 Eclipse.
