Default Trunk/luggage courtesy bulb for '86 Camry

Does anybody know the bulb model/type for the trunk courtesy lamp in an '86
Camry? Mine has never had one as long as I've owned it, so the original is
not there to easily get a replacement. I've looked everywhere and can't
find information. If it helps, the socket looks to accept a rectangular
base (maybe 1/2" x 1/8", don't know the depth ??)

Thanks a bunch!

TJ

Try bulb #168, available at your local parts store.

I'd suspect a 194 or a 158?? Go with the higher wattage one. The 99 Camry
has a piss poor trunk light. I swapped in one of the license plate lights
instead.

Too weak. That's what the 99 Camry came with. I swapped in a 194, like the
license plate lights use, and found more illumination.

Ugh, I meant to say that my 99 originally had a **168**. The 194 has same
size base but slightly more wattage and is better.

I never recommend using a higher wattage bulb than the factory recommended
one because of potential problems with heating wires that may be sized "just
right" and melting housings and covers. If someone wants to experiment or
do the math, then they probably wouldn't be asking questions about proper
lamp sizes and wattages.

Understood. However there isn't THAT much for guts in a 194 bulb than a 168
bulb but SOME additional illumination.
