    I can't find this bulb anywhere, see attached. Last ditch before I go to the Dealer! I bought two already from Amazon, no dice. Thanks, it's a Toshiba 12V 8W "P37"

    Very hard to tell - is this it?

    Sometimes the effort to improve on just going to the dealer and buying the silly thing doesn't really pay off.

    Many bulbs fit that basic configuration, though most are 5w bulbs. Are you sure it's a dome light? Dome lights usually have the long tube type bulbs with the contacts at the ends.

    It might be the map lights near the rearview mirror.

    These are other sizes you can search: 168, T10, 194, 2825, including LED bulbs, which theoretically will be brighter and last longer. If you use LEDs, they are polarity dependent, so if they don't light, turn them 180 degrees in the mount.

    You're correct, map light. I'm just gonna go to the Stealer and grab a bulb. This one has lasted a long time. Thanks.

    $3 and change at Toyota Dealer + I got a free mocha. Well worth it.

    I replaced all of the incandescent bulbs of the type five years, ago with LED's of this type,



    All of them are still working. White light is much better than yellowish light.

    You can have all of it that you want. To me it's the color of a warehouse.

    I also prefer warmer tone lights. The white and bluish white are too harsh IMO. They don't sell blue blocker glasses to prevent eye strain for nothing.
