The easiest thing to do is to start taking exiting bulbs out, measure them, and then compare your measurements to what superbrightleds.com has posted on their site as the measurements. The festoon bulbs are pretty easy and those are your foot rest lights, vanity mirrors, glove box, and trunk. You need 194 wedges to fit in the map light fixtures. Size of those are whats important as the holes they have to fit in are small. Just make sure the size of the new LED is the same or smaller than the existing 194 wedge bulb.
