Any decent autoparts store should be able to help you - but if you get stuck you
might try www.importpartsspec.com. I get all of mine there. The only bulb I have
had trouble getting is the one that goes inside some of the switches - like the
fog light switch. They are a smaller shoulder and lower wattage. So far I have
had to scavage them from the junk yard. Even the dealer is clueless (no suprise
there) and has been totally unable/unwilling to even provide a bulb part number.
They can however privide a new switch.
All of the cluster lamps however were easy to get.
