    The information in this thread will be updated as more information is available, but in the meantime this should be helpful to those that need a quick reference.


    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.

    the low beam i saw fasttc post its h11 for 08' is it the same for 07?
    • Jan 04, 2008 5:43:57 am
    You bring up a good point... on 07 and prior the factory OEM fogs are 9006. On the 2008 + it is most likely an H11.

    If anyone can confirm this, I'll update the information
    • Jan 04, 2008 6:28:28 am
    so for the 07 and prior its defintly 9006 for lows and oem fogs,
    HB4 Halogens.

    ^ That is some useful information, but it's not updated for 2008 Projectors.
