First up.... bulbs for the low beams
9006---for normal driving---05-07 low beams and OEM Foglight
an easy way to point out the 9006 is the thin bit of metal coating on the tip... it should also say "9006" there are only two metal prongs.
High Beams----for spotting those deer----9005
9005 High beam bulbs burn brighter and usually do not contain the metal at the tip of the bulb. It also has two metal prongs, but will not fit a 9006 female plug unless the plastic is modified.
Projector Headlamps (2008 + tC + xB----H11)
New tC's and xB's which feature projector housing and lenses use an H11 size bulb, this size will also need to be specified when ordering HID for your newer model car. Other aftermarket headlamp housing my use a different size H bulb, be sure and check. The OEM projector from Scion uses an H11
OEM Fog Lights for 2008 will use H11
7440 Turn Blinker Bulb-----use your turn signals!
The bulb can be replaced with other colors but it's illegal in all 50 states to use a non amber bulb (when illuminated) Use amber
7443 Brake Bulb
Notice the difference from the turn signal. These bulbs have two filaments in them.
921---Your reverse lights
reverse lights... nuff said.
194/168----Most of the bulbs in the interior, parking, domes, side markers and license plate
They are called 194 or 168 because they are both the same thing. These tiny bulbs are polarized (like most of the bulbs above) meaning you must use the correct + or - or it will not light up. These are also the parking lights used for the 2008 Scion tC.
Interior Rear Dome----3175 (10mm x 31mm)--called a Festoon type
Trunk/Luggage Light---3022 (08mm x 28 mm) Festoon
the easiest bulb to replace, just snap into place.
Center Cubby Hole---74
it's a smaller bulb, it comes in normal incandescent or LED
Speedo gauge/HVAC LED/steering wheel controls/Window switches---PLCC LEDS
tiny little LEDS that must be soldered into place
OEM Radio----0603 /window switches LEDs: 1206
for OEM Radio/Window Switches
Mirror Signals 5mm SuperFlux
these LEDs must be soldered into place to replace the OEM LED.
