HINTS: Go to Amazon. List your truck as a vehicle there, and fill in all the information requested. This will really help you on searches for parts there.

If you live near an Advance Auto Parts store, sign up at their main website for their Speed Perks program. Then add your vehicle to your account there, filling in the same details they ask for at Amazon.

Do the same thing at eBay...

Parts searches become much easier. Trust me on this.

One good thing if you have Advance in your area is their Speed Perks program sends you (via email) all kinds of crazy-cool discounts. 30% off on your order. Five bucks off on your NEXT order if you purchased fifty bucks or more on your LAST order. Combined discounts okay. I got a deep-cycle 105-amp hour battery there in January that ended up costing me less than a hundred bucks, and came with a three-year FULL replacement warranty, not pro-rated. They do that with all their batteries.

ebay 0 results that match the holder size i have advanced auto 0 results period amazon 0 results. google 0 results
amazon search sucks,so many times it comes up fits your vehicle then dont want to acknowledge when you tell them its wrong.
DO NOT TRUST AMAZON SEARCH

That's how they are on my old Benz, but in the truck mine just popped out. I've got an 86.5 XE V6.

Yup on 86.5 they do pop out but are smaller then the 90 the 90 definetly does not pop out as i finally pried bulb out destroying it by ripping wire off it. My big problem is none of the bulbs with carrier are the same size as either of the bulbs i have .the 86.5 is 18mm the 90 is 19.the 86.5 carrier is brown the 90 carrier is light grey.all the diameter measurements of the carriers are different.alot are 16mm some are 10mm.not are either of the oem

Check Napa Wiring numbers 787122 and 787140 - I'd check at work, but we don't have any in stock at this time.
