To help those who are thinking about purchasing bulbs to replace one that is out of service or for upgrading purposes, it’s always a good idea to know the size or at least double check. The 100% fail-proof way to know what size your actual bulb size, is to physically remove the bulb and read the markings and identifying letter codes. In some cases the headlight may need to be removed to access the bulb and its too much trouble just to check and get the bulb and have to remove it again : ) Either way, Philips Bulb Finder is by far the best method for finding out your sizes for headlights, interior/exterior and throughout the vehicle. Click here for Automotive Bulb Size Finder.
TECH TIP: The size of the bulb is on the front of the headlight lens. It’s clear and almost unnoticeable. Raised lettering along the edges will have letters and numbers marking low beams and high beams. It’s a great idea to look them up so you can have a general idea and then confirm it by looking at the actual lens when it’s too much of an issue to physically remove the bulb first.
