    Can someone verify the size of the front quarter panel turn signal bulbs? Are they 194's?

    Pull back the wheel well liner, and then you can reach it from the inside and push it out...you may have to turn the wheels also

    Remove the the carpet liner on the trunk lid...i built shiney housings for mine to give them a brighter look...i used "tin foil tape" (ac tape) to build them

    Can anyone tell me where I can find instructions for replacing the passenger side "bullet" lamp in the headlight assembly on my 08 STS ? Apparently it's a rather daunting task.
    Thanks, Rob

    There's an ongoing debate among members. The 'by the book' crowd say remove the bumper cover. The 'shortcut' crowd say it's not necessary.

    As usual, they both have their points.

    Need help on removing the light bulb from under the shifter. It was easy to remove the trim to see the bulb. The little blue bulb won't come out. Tried to pull & twist, no luck. What part number is this bulb. Is this a dealer item. Thanks, Danny

    The part number (for my 2008) is 89027003. You don't show what year your STS is so I'm assuming 2005+ in which case I believe it's the same part number. When I bought one for my car, US retail on this item is $32.48. Chris at Rippy will likely be able to do much better but this is an expensive bulb.

    ddalder, Thanks for the info. My STS is an 06. With the price of this bulb it might stay dark. Is there a trick on removing the bulb.. Danny

    I haven't actually replaced mine yet. The backlight seemed a little dimmer on one side versus the other so I bought a bulb thinking I may have one out but this wasn't the case. As far as I knew, it was just a twist and remove. I'd have to get back into the console to look closer to be offer better advice.
