Hey guys, the bulb that lights up the gears is gone, can anyone tell me what type of bulb it is, the power button was is also gone (has been for a while) can anyone tell me about that one too?

Thanks,
Mike.

You can get them from Coventry's just tell them which ones you need and they will be able to find the corrrect part numbers. The gear selection globe is a wedge globe and i think the power button is a T5 from memory.

gear selector light is a T10 (Basically a parker light) which is why you see 100000000000 vt/vx's wth factory green dash lights and big ass bright blue gear selector light, coz its really easy to change,

As for the power button its a T5 halogen mounted in a holder, only way to replace those is get one from holden/wrecker, or convert to LED

The T5 bulbs in holders are $4.50 brand new from Coventrys. Don't waste your time going to a wreckers when you don't know how long you will get out of a new bulb. It's a fair job to change it too, don't want to have to do it again in a month.

I actually used the red T5 globes made for the hazard light switch in the Power and Traction Control buttons in my wagon. They're the same globe and if you can only get the red ones you can swap the green condom over onto it if you want the normal green light.

How did you get to the globes, I need to do mine and I had a look the other day and couldn't see how to get to the globe holder.

Sadly I am in NSW, guessing Repco or Super Cheap will be able to help, but pretty sure I can get those globes at my local servo.

The T10 wedge globes u can get easy enough from there but as mick said the T5 globes that u need come in holders so ur paying extra 4 those. u can go 2 jaycar or the likes and buy a bezel 4 a buck if that and just simily re wire it into the same holder.

ideally ur better off using LEDs, globes r useless even new globes dont last long thats y cars after the VX's r gettin out of them, even the VY's still use a couple globes still but have converted the more important conponents so u dont have 2 worry about them as they will last the life of the car pretty much

in my experience you are better to go to holden to get the globes. u can find some that fit at various auto stores that will work but they are not the same wattage as the factory ones and will look to bright when u put them in. for example from memory the gear stick light is a standard parker style globe but its not 5watt like all the ones they sell at supercheap its something strange like 3.5 watt or something strange.

You can get the genuine Holden parts sealed in GM bags at places like Coventrys usually 15-20% cheaper than Holden.
