Default Changing quarter marker light bulb?

Hey guys, im trying to change my passenger side quarter marker light because it's burnt out. I tried googling it but apparently nobody knows what it is. I need to figure out how to get the bulb out itself, i know how to take the whole piece out. Then i need to find out where they sell the bulbs ><

Not sure on the mustangs, but a lot of cars use a 194 as a side marker...

He does have a valid reason that so much info is in that book that no one reads.
Delivery could be smoothed out for a less jagged sound but he is correct

Lazy Lamos (I like to call them) think that thing info here is just for the asking.
Go ahead and clog up the valid posts with ones that are asked routinely.
Questions that could be answered with a quick look at the Owners Manual
have no place here.

I actually did read it, and there was nothing in there pertaining to the removal of the lights and the light bulbs themselves. But thanks for the negativity anyways (:

Funny because my manual looks nothing like that. It was a simple question that could have been answered without attitude, knowing that ive looked in multiple places as well.

Over 12000 posts and I still wonder how many of them are REALLY worth a damn.
157, we already told you multiple times that we can't help you with little pecker syndrome so chill with the n00bs.

Austin, don't let it go to your head it's just an Internet thing...

I know that the OM in my '07 has the bulb #'s for almost every lamp in the car and I'm sure the side marker is included. Perhaps the OM for the '05 is lacking.

Regardless, a belated welcome to the forum.

I have the 05, 06 and 07 manuals in printed form.
They are identical in the bulb replacing department.

I dont recall seeing many places where it says 'grab the plastic fitting holding the bulb and rotate it counter-clockwise to unlock it, then pull it straight out. Once the socket and bulb are removed from the lens housing, pull the bulb straight out of the connector'.

Once you've done one bulb, somewhere, most are the same. I dont recall coming across any of the older style bulbs where you push in the bulb itself and rotate to remove it from the socket; all the modern ones now, I think, just plug into the socket. Headlamps are a little different, as the connector snaps into the plug that is built into the bulb end, and you twist and rotate and remove the whole bulb together.

The front use 2 different sized bulbs, one for the the blinkers, one small one for just the light.

Those small bulbs are very common and are used everywhere, they'll all eventually burn out. 194 or 192 sounds about right.

If you dont know what bulb to get, take it with you to the store, or read the number on the bulb if you can and get them cheap at walmart.

We all had to learn how to remove a bulb. Sometimes it's not that obvious.
