does anyone knows what kind of blub do the b15s use inside the Dash board? I mean the little bulbs inside as the back light of the gauges?

I opened the thing before too. Tried to replace them with those Sylvania amber bulbs. Needless to say, it turned out ugly as f***.

The bulbs that are lighting the guages are the ones with the brown casing. Just twist one of those out and run to Pep Boys (or your local auto store). I THINK the bulb is 194... but I'm not sure. It's been a while.

*edit* I just remembered I still have those lights in my dad's toolbox. When I get home from work, I'll look at the bulb# if you want.

thx a lot. Ack i thought the bulbs lighting the gauges were the black casting....(there were total 6 black casting and a lot in brown casting..)

do you think there will be a difference between the gxe and the SE? since they got different gauge....

oh and is that the bulb with the casting or i have to pull the bulb out from the casting?

You know what, you might be right. Six lights sounds about right for the gauge lighting. Maybe it's the black ones. Sorry, it's been a while since I've seen the back of the gauge cluster.

The lights should be the same with the SE and GXE.

For the bulbs, you have to twist the casting out first, THEN pull the bulbs out of the casting.

Sentra_noob...

I was WAY off. The bulb number that I used for the gauge lights was 24NA. Just thought I'd let you know.

Yah. The 194's are for sidemarkers. Sorry bout that. :p

And yup, you can get the 24NA's at Pep Boys. The bulb itself is actually a little bigger than the stock lights, but the base of the bulb fits into the casting socket and the lights go in without a problem.

I put the 24NA (amber) bulbs in my SE gauges. Trust me, they looked booty as hell because the color just wasn't orange enough. They looked "dirty orange". Took em off the very next week. It would look nicer if the color was more pronounced though. I think if you use those colored light bulb "condoms", then the gauges would look SWEET!

Sentra_noob. If there's a blue bulb, you're sure not going to find it at Pep Boys. Try going to a local accessory shop (or rice store :D). They should have the bulbs there... either that or the "bulb condoms".
