Re: What type of bulb goes above the license plate? (lax01)

When I bought my car, one of the first things that I did was a trip to NAPA...<p>New Yellow Light Bulbs for the Turn Signal Lights<br>New Clear Bulbs for the Brake Lights<br>New Clear Bulbs for the License Plate Lights <p>I have no idea what the bulb numbers are. All of the info was in NAPA's computer. <p>Owner Manuals On-line...<br><A HREF="http://apps.volvocars.us/ownersdocs/1997/1997_850/97850_000.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://apps.volvocars.us/owner...0.htm</A><br><A HREF="http://apps.volvocars.us/ownersdocs/1998/1998_SV70/98sv70_000.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://apps.volvocars.us/owner...0.htm</A><p>More info, including Maintenance Charts, Owners' Manuals, Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN), Vehicle Identification Codes (VIC), Vehicle Specifications, Warranty Booklets and Press Releases<br>at...<br>old link <A HREF="http://www.volvocars.us/_Tier2/Owners/Library.htm" TARGET="_blank">http://www.volvocars.us/_Tier2/Owners/Library.htm</A><br>new link <A HREF="http://www.volvocars.us/tools/OwnersInfo" TARGET="_blank">http://www.volvocars.us/tools/OwnersInfo</A>/<p>

OFF TOPIC: That bulb can also be put into the instrument cluster. It makes the gagues a tiny bit brighter and no, it doesnt melt anything inside the cluster. The cluster requires 4 bulbs.<br>Just thought I'd share some info to those who did not know. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Trade number for those bulbs are 194. I put in the LED version and it beats the heck out of the incandescent yellow glow that the others used to put out.

You can get LED's for them that aren't as bright as the factory bulbs too and aren't that ugly faded yellow color.
