Broke my interior light

Is it possible to get a new plastic covering for the Interior Light on my AUII forte?

I was cleaning my car on the weekend, and tried to take it off to have a look at the specs of the bulb (so I could change it to a brighter white (not yellow) bulb) but the plastic broke.

As well as the plastic covering, what anyone have the specs of the bulb I need to replace the current bulb with a whiter light? The yellow shits me.

Cheers

Thats what I figured.

How do you get it off without braking it, if I pop down to the wreckers?

Re: Broke my interior light

You can buy them from Ford brand new for about $5. Just take it off slowly next time!! It should unclip from one end and then just come out from the other. For a brighter 'white', I just made an LED setup. I am unaware if you can buy them already made. If you do find something, can you inform us?

Cheers.

Re: Broke my interior light

The festoon globe on my AU isn't yellow, doesn't shit me, and I don't have any problem with it. Like what Xrated said, they are about $5 from a Ford dealer. Go and get it and while you're there ask them if they sell different brighter festoon globes.
