I need to replace a side-light bulb (IS250 2009). 

Does anyone know of a guide and what size bulb, please?

Seem to be several YouTube guides for replacing low-beam bulbs, but none for sides. (Actually, they’re more like ‘centrals’!)

if it's easy enough to remove ? .......... why not just take it out and then into a real shop and ask for a replacement ?

Have you looked in the handbook. At the risk of sounding like someone else on here...:rolleyes:

The sidelight bulb is bayonet type. It's behind the rubber cover. Lots of YouTube videos on changing bulbs yes headlight but sidelight bulb is under that cover. I've got LED ones in mine. I'll post a link if I can find it.

These are brilliant. Just be wary removing the rubber cover. Note where things are around it. The passenger side you'll have to remove the washer bottle fill tube, one bolt and it lifts straight up. Drivers side can be done without having to take air filter box off. Take your time and be methodical.

Looks good – complements the hue of the HIDs 🤩 

How long have you had these LEDs in place; any fault codes or battery-drain probs?

Hi Nick. I got them last August. Fitted them very easily. Only issue was the passenger side cover. Couldn't get it back on so I ended up cutting off the 2 tangs and now the cover stays on no problem. The bulbs illuminate really well. Not dazzling but a really good bright light.

I have replaced side lights with matching colour "temperature" (6000k) Osram LEDs:

I had to get the bumper off, at the garage to replace my lights. I changed all of them.
