I used the v-led flank 5k flank bulbs. I think it was either 1w or 2w. You get to the bulbs by prying the lens out of the housing. There are two tabs on the clear lens holding it in. Each tab is in the center of the short sides. I used a small blade on a pocket knife to wedge in between the lens and housing and pry it out. Check RennatUSSR thread as he has the bulbs listed and they are a dead match for other interior LED.

hey man they are the same bulbs as the parking lights and puddle mirror lights on your car 194 will work the bulb it self i believe is a 4w the 194 is a 5w bulb. But if you are planning on putting led light in them go with these. I have them in my car and they are much brighter and are less watts so they wont burn out. plus it give off that hint of blue glo. I bought all my lights from them and they all look really good together.

as far a taking them off get a small screw driver under it and pop the clip on the inside of the housing closet to the middile of you car. don't be scared you wont break it.
