Climate Control Light Bulbs

Hey Guys,
Yesterday, my light bulb went out on the right side of my climate control. I have done numerous searches online and have found people saying that I can only find that replacement bulb at Toyota. Other people say that a #74 bulb will fit perfectly and some say that a #74 bulb will not fit perfectly. Can anybody help clarify this problem for me. By the way, it is a 2003 tacoma. Thanks.

Hey I need help, i'm confused there's like six different kinds of the same one. I have a 1st gen just like that article you posted and I want to do everything in the article.

Also, what does blue look like vs white? Are the leds in the article picture blue or white?

Mmmk got my bulbs in the mail today (quick shipping) and started to do this. Only ran into two problems with this mod.

First off, the smaller bulbs that go into the a/c and climate control area.. The right bulb is really loose. Is it possible to open up the housing and tighten the clamp inside? I don't want to start just pullin on stuff yknow.

Second, how do you open up the dome light cover? Does it just pop off? Which way should I push it?

And i'm still workin on the dash so I might have more q's later.

Thanks folks

Answered my own questions.

For the loose light, I just popped on a TINY bit of gorilla glue, away from the electrical contacts.

For the dome light, just pry it off away from the switch. It's pretty easy.


And dually.. that dome light looks legit!
