Default Tiny instrument bulbs in 1991 Accord

Good morning.

My 1991 Accord uses a large number of Very Tiny Lightbulbs in the dashboard,
especially inside the audio component faceplates. Can anyone refer me to a
source for these bulbs, aside from the Honda dealer?

Thanks
-Mark

Try searching at the online Honda OEM parts sites (great
illustrations, and similar prices, at both):

www.slhondaparts.com

www.hondaautomotiveparts.com

I nosed around looking for these little bulbs, but could not
turn them up quickly. Nonetheless, it's highly likely they
sell them. You can call during the normal workday.

google.

for single items like this, it's cheaper to use the dealer. by the time
you're paid postage and handling online, while the bulb itself may be
cheaper, overall the process costs you much more. and you have to wait.

Good point. However, I need enough of them for a complete
replacement (because tearing the dash apart more than once
is a pain in the butt.) Also, these bulbs have flexible leads and
are fitted into custom sockets, sort of like the modern Christmas
lights. I suspect that the dealer's substantial price (about five bucks
per bulb) may be mostly for the holder.

Many of the Odyssey owners are using Radio Shack bulbs. Do a search on the
www.odyclub.com forum for the RS part number.

I get them by the fistfull at the wrecking yard. Various sizes. You put
them on the counter and the guy says "Ummmm, two bucks".

Default Check out the Sylvania website

Its cool. They have all the bulbs listed for every car. Most if not all
are available at Advance Auto Parts or other vendors listed in their
search page.
