Welcome to the forum. Regards the bulbs your handbook for the car will detail what is required for what function it does.
On the bulbs for angel lights ? I haven't got a clue maybe some of the lads on here can point you in the right direction. Other than that take the bulbs out and go to Halfords, if in any doubt go to the stealers. In saying that their bulbs are not that expensive and you will get the correct ones.

I can only tell you a few mate which is what i know for 100%

Dipped Beam - H7
Main Beam - H1
Reading bulbs in the ceiling x 2 - Same as your sidelights
Fogs - H3
Rear number plate bulbs - Festoons aswell same as below
Interior light x 1 in the ceiling of the car - I think they are called festoons, pic below

Thats everything i think lol, but i know every1 of the above 100% correct

Hope it helps.

Thanks mate, I ordered some H3's and they arrived today! But the thing is, I have no idea how to replace the bulb... The bulb which I have taken out looks more like the H8-H11 range on this picture shown: http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/attachmen ... _chart.jpg

Any ideas where I have gone wrong?

Cheers!

As far as i know these are the light bulb types:

Side lights and 2 interior map lights = 501 wedge
interior dome light, sunvisor mirror light and number plate lights = 39mm festoon
dip beam = H7
main beam = H1
Fogs = HB4/9006 (not 100% on this as not changed them myself)

Hope this helps!!!

On the cover that goes on the back of my fogs actually has the connection that your bulb has on it which is wierd, what i think might happen you clip the bulb into the cover then clip the bulb into the fog and reconnect the wire on the outside of the cover, on mine it was a H3 bulb as didnt take long at all =S

I think I found the solution guys... The bulb size/type is 9006 :S Sounds a bit strange... http://img.alibaba.com/photo/51206500/9 ... n_Bulb.jpg

But it sounds right! :) So I'm happy! Thanks anyway guys!
