    Default What is the bulb #? Glove box '86 MGM Tudor

    So first I can not find the damn bulb number as somehow I dropped and lost the bulb:-(

    Also how in the world do I get the bulb in?..does the light holder have to be dropped?

    On '91 it's just a 194 bulb. I don't recall how that bulb is mounted on a pre-90 box since I've never had to bother with that bulb on any of my pre-90 boxes.

    My sons 87 Vic is a 194 bulb, just pulled it last night. Just pushes in from the front, like from the firewall back to glove box. Make sense?

    I can not actually see where the bulb pushes in...on the '86 the bulb goes in from the rear, not the front:-(

    One of those small mirrors on a stick and a side shot flashlight in the glove box comes in really handy to see that spot.

    You have to do it by feel. The mirror on stick idea will certainly help.
