Dome and Map light bulb length?

I would like to install Led bulbs.
Probelm is that I found so many on ebay with different lengths, I don't know which to purchase.
I can't check right now because my dad has borrowed the car for a 2 day trip.

Can someone that has change the bulbs, please tell me the length of the bulbs?
Is it 31, 36, 39 or 42mm?

So you bought a DE3175 and it works, eh? Guess that is what I will buy. Thanks
I wonder if the "31" means 31mm.

I was just con fused cause the FAQ says to replace with a DE3022.

They are all 31mm in length.
I had mine all changed to supposedly white xenon filled bulbs, but they're stilll quite yellow to me.
I once tried the super white LEDs but they were just not bright enough and were quite purple.

The two front dome lights would fit longer bulbs with a bit of modification to the metal clips (I have 39mm ones there), the center dome one is harder b/c of space limitation.

Anyone have good results in replacing they're bulbs to xenon white ones?
Mine are only whiter but still has a yellow cast to it.

I have an intermittant connection issue in one of my map lights. I don't see any slots for screwdriver access to pry the lenses down and don't want to damage anything in the process. What is the propper procedure for accessing these bulbs in the map light console.
