LED Domelight recommendation that actually fits.

Looking for a recommendation for an LED bulb that actually fits the Rear Dome Light above the passenger seats.
I have tried 3 different bulbs/ brands and i can't find anything that will fit the same as the OEM one. All the ones I've tried are 1/4" to long.

The factory bulb has no markings and couldn't find an actual bulb number referenced in the manual.


Thanks in advance,

I bought the bulb, but does anyone know how to remove the dome light cover?

i used a wide panel popper and stuck it between the clear plastic and the grey plastic and dragged it around the crevice which eventually popped the clips.

Thanks! I got the cover off and inserted the LED bulb referenced in this thread. Interestingly, the OEM bulb has slightly flat blades at either end but the LED bulb is rounded at Bothe ends. I was able to install it ok and I think it's fully seated. I must admit however that the LED light doesn't seem that much brighter.

I used this SiriusLED bulb: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

NOTE: this thing is super bright. I've used a lot of LED bulbs but this is the brightest one I've ever seen. It lights up the whole vehicle by itself.

does it fit properly in the housing? Every bub I've tried won't fit even with decent force.

It popped in but at a slight angle. The ends of the bulb are pointed. Seems like it would fit better with flat ends. But it holds snugly and lights up like the sun.
