Sooo... what size are these bulbs? Do I have to resort to going to the dealer and pay, what... $5-10 per bulb???
I believe the correct size you need is #37. I just tried replacing my HVAC lights with some new #74 bulbs and had the same problem with the base spreading open a little and you couldn't push it back together. I looked around and saw the #37 bulb as a cross reference. I don't know if it's physically smaller or not but I'm going to check the auto part store and see if they carry these.
