    I have an 03 3.4L 4X4 TRD & recently had to replace a couple of the bulbs in the climate control panel. Had read earlier in some of the LED conversion threads that they were #74 bulbs. They are not. Went to several local auto parts stores & was not able to find them. Had to go to the dealer & pay $12.30 each!
    Toyota part # is 90010-05120. If anyone has a part # and supplier for LED versions of these bulbs please let me know. Was unable to find any online. Here are a couple of pics of these bulbs. They have a plastic base 1/4 turn to install. They are not wedge bulbs.

    They run for $5.15 each and then they try to charge you just over $12.00 to ship them out to you.. What a scam... I picked up a bulb at the dealer for $5.29 + tax...

    they are believe it or not. you have to pull that current bulb out of the plastic housing and then wrap the metal wires on the base of the new led around the grooves in the plastic base. works like a charm :thumbsup:

    No, they were $12.30 each picked up at the dealership. We get sport-humped for everything up here in Canada.

    I used Red LEDs but they sell regular or LED bulbs there. Here's a photo:

    I think one of the "sockets" is a bit flaky. I have to get a replacement and tear into the dash again. I probably won't get a chance until spring. :(

    If you werent aware, the LEDs can only work one way. If you take it out, turn it 180 degress then put it back in it might work.
