    I ended up taking the bolts out of the alternator so it could drop down in the bracket a little and it seemed like it helped some also.

    Can the bulb be removed from the clear housing, and is the size stamped or written on the bulb contacts?

    Check out the sticky thread in the interior section of the forum

    Puddle Lights - 2 - These go under your outside side mirrors. Get the festoon 42mm 4210-xHP6 high powered bulbs. They are a little trouble getting them in and then aimed correctly, but they make a world of difference.

    What "buffer"? I still see swirls and holograms. You should try a dual action polisher with a more aggressive cut. You can still get a sweet polish on that old girl.

    Looks better then mine though!

    Its a festoon bulb 42 to 44 mm fit fine. I have some big ones shoehorned in there. There is a sticky on the led swap. Good bulbs in there make a huge difference. The stock ones are worthless.
