Side Mirror Bulbs

Volvo describes the bulb for the side mirror or “Approach” light as “12.8 V, 11 W.” Aftermarket show others (e.g. 6W and 10W) some with 10mm glass, some with 16mm, but all with a W2.1×9.5d base (unknown if the 16mm will fit all housings). What ever is used, keep it below 11w. A W5W (2825) will work fine. Others one may encounter also shown for comparison. This photo shows the
