V70 seat heater switch bulb question?

Post by scot850 » Wed Dec 06, 2017 4:49 pm

I'm trying to catch up cleaning and checking all the used parts siting on my workbenches.

I have several front seat heater switches for 98-00 models that sit beside the coin tray under the radio.

All to the switches work, but one has a blown bulb. Thought it would be the same as all other switch bulbs other than the bulb has that blue rubberised cover to change the colour on it. Looking at the bulb glass section it looks longer than the usual ones I use. The actual bulb holder looks the same on the top where the bulb is, but slightly different on the bottom. The short bulb holder used in the other dash switches fits into the seat heater switch ok.

Does anyone know if they are the same, and if not, what the correct bulb is?

I am about to order some more replacement bulbs from Mouser so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Neil.

I posted some info on Radio Shack bulbs.
Just re-use the blue cover if that came with the car.

I haven't replaced that particular one on an 98+ but I wold just go with the usual, 7219 from Mouser. You could try one out in advance to be sure but I can't imagine they won't work.

1+,

Radio Shack 272-1092 is similar to 7219.
Ebay has people selling a 10-pack of 7219 bulbs for $5 or so.

They are still $0.35 each at Mouser, it is a great resource.

When buying 50 it is about $22 CDN, but the rip-off is $20 for shipping!! How on earth can 50 of these bulbs cost that much to ship?

I have used a 560-7219 bulb for now, but like I said the original is about 30% longer, but I have no idea if it is any different in terms of performance until I can try then side by side.

Thanks for all the input.

Neil.

Use ebay, it is shipped by US Post Office, about $4-$5 shipping cost.
So if you buy 20, then $10 for 20 bulbs + $5 shipping.
