Default Tiny bulbs?

Anyone tried finding these guys in town before? They're illumination bulbs for headlight/rear dimmer/window switches on '95 ZJ.

I'd give you the ones out of my 94 GC parts car, but they were gone when I got the car., if you find a source post it, several GC owners on here. There is a specialty light store on Tudor, and Batteries Plus is now Batteries Plus Bulbs. Good luck!

So far I've only checked O'reillys and Autozone(only places open). There are actually 3 different sizes between the 5 bulbs. And the sockets are integral. Plan on trying Frigid and Napa tomorrow.

Default Re: Tiny bulbs?

Last time I had to replace a few I had to get them at the dealer.
The bulb comes with the base. They weren't very expensive from what I can remember, maybe $1 or so.

Default Re: Tiny bulbs?

Frigid was the only place to find them without buying the switches to get the bulbs. And you need to reuse your plastic sockets. Was pretty simple to unwind, and change out with a decent tweezer though. They didn't have the tiniest bulb for the dimmer slider in stock. PN ml8640(14v 0.08a, bare wire leads) is what I got for the other sockets, it was a perfect fit for the black ones, but a size smaller than what the larger gray sockets had originally. Still works fine in the bigger socket, just not as tight fitting.

For future reference, heres what went where on my '95
O/D button-black socket (ml8640 bulb)
Rear defrost button-black socket (ml8640 bulb)
Headlight switch-larger gray socket (next size above ml8640)
Rear wiper/washer slider-larger gray socket (next size above ml8640)
Dimmer/dome slider-smaller gray socket (size below ml8640)
