1998 SC2
Default Back Up Lights

Went to replace my bulbs today with some LED ones and the bulbs are stuck. I know I can use some WD-40 to get them free but I was wondering if I would also be able to use PB Blaster or electronics cleaner? Maybe even brake cleaner? Since I don't have any WD-40 laying around.

Just would rather get anyone's input on other stuff I can use so I don't mess up the socket.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I found a can of CRC Power Lube in my toolbox so I sprayed that in there but now I feel dumb cause I realized that I forgot to push the bulb in before I turned. Bulbs are out now and the new LEDs are in.

Look pretty good, but not as good as I wanted. I'll put one of the old bulbs back in tonight and take a picture for comparison.

Those things happen. I'm out of WD-40 also, finally used up the last of a three pack I got at Sams Club a long time ago. I like using WD when doing bulbs and such just to give it a quick clean in the socket, then use a little dielectric to keep them from getting sticky and corroded again.

Where did you get the LED lights, and how many lumens are they putting out or whatever their rating is....

Got them for 4.59 plus tax on eBay. Each one has 9 LED's on them, but on the passenger side I messed one up putting it in.

Here's the ad... http://www.ebay.com/itm/251374328344...84.m1439.l2649

They don't look too bad. Next time you buy LEDs, try Super Bright LEDs.

I'll probably get some next time. I plan on upgrading all my exterior lights. Also put some in my license plate lights but they didn't work so I have to get a refund, and waiting on my HID conversion kit to get here for the low beam headlights.
