So.... the only H11b bulb I can find out there is made by Sylvania. Does anyone know if it's a regular replacement halogen bulb or if it's the "whiter" bulb? I'm looking for something similar to a xenon....
I want to put together a listing of all the light bulbs in the Forte sedan & Koup and I need your help please. Below is the list I have so far and I need help with the missing bulb types and any missing listing including any differences between the Sedan and Koup. Also if I have made any mistakes. Thanks
High-beam/Daytime Running Light H1
Front Turn Signals ?
Mirror Turn Signals ?
Tail lights 1157
Brake/Rear Signal Lights 1157
Center Mounted Brake Light ?
Rear Marker Lights ?
Reverse Lights ?
License Plate Lights T10
Map Lights ?
Dome Light ?
Door Courtesy Light ?
Trunk Light ?
The 1156 & 1157 are physically the same size bulb, the difference is that the 1156 is a single filament bulb and the 1157 is a dual filament bulb.two people posted two different bulb number for the rear turn light and brake lights.
Any idea which number is actually the right one?
Yes, on both the Koup and Sedan you have to remove the assembly to replace the bulbs.so 1157 for all the tails but turn and reverse then?
also...the koup seems to require one to remove the entire lens assembly in order to swap bulbs.
try to put in 3175 in ebay thats how i found my led map light on my koupThe map lights are listed as "175", but I can't find this type of festoon bulb anywhere. anyone else been able to find it in LED?
You said "cut/tear". Is there any kind of damage done in the process with the trunk lining? Thanks.Yes, on both the Koup and Sedan you have to remove the assembly to replace the bulbs.
Why!? I have no idea why they did it this way!
I believe the reverse is a 921 but don't quote me. That should be all the bulbs.
I have attached a pdf of the replacement procedure and it shows 2 bulbs in the outer light, 1 for Stop/Tail light and 1 for Turn signal. Then 2 more on the inner light, 1 for tail light and 1 for reverse.
OK so today I decide to look for myself and here's what I found on my sedan.
1. you DO NOT need to remove the tail light assembly. I was able to open to access door in the trunk (you will need to cut/tear the edges) and twist and remove the sockets. Just make a note of the position of the socket after you loosen it, it makes it easier to line it up after wards.
2. the bulbs are as follows:
Outer light 1 x 1157 Tail/Brake light in the upper position, 1 x 1156 Signal light in the lower position.
Inner Light (on trunk) 1 x 1157 tail light with only 1 filament used, 1 x 921 wedge base reverse light.
I hope this clears things up.
No, sorry I didn't explain it better.You said "cut/tear". Is there any kind of damage done in the process with the trunk lining? Thanks.
