Clock light bulb 98 Accord Coupe EX

I need some light bulbs for my clock as it burned out. (Duh! hehe)

Anyways I am looking for Genuine Honda bulbs, or Radio Shack bults for my Honda Accord Coupe 98 EX.

Give the price of both of the bulbs you can get it for, and the shipping and handling that will be necessary in order to complete this transaction.

Thank you.

P.S.: Umm... I know this is small fry, but I think I got ripped off buying Honda bulbs from eBay ($5+ total with shipping for one). And I am way too lazy to go to my "local" Honda parts dealer as they are not so "local" for me and they are punks who do not look like they want to work. As for the Radio Shack option, the Radio Shack I know, do not sell these bulbs . What a bummer.

not to be rude to your question but LMAO! I'm really sorry

to help you out in changing your bulb just take a straight bladed screw driver and place it at the bottom of the clock and pry it up. It will just pop out and then there will be 2 wire plugs 1 for the clock and 1 for the Hazard lights make sure to unplug the wires before attempting to take out or replace a bulb because there is electricity running through it... It's very low so it wont shock you at all but when putting in new bulbs it will short circiut them and blow them and it is just a good habbit to get into when working with electronics. I hope that answered your question on how to replace the bulb.

also the bulb is REALLY small it should be the only little thing on the back that turns on it only turns one way so don't force it.

Yeah, I was stupid that I short circuited my new bulb that I only got for a few hours :P. I did not pull the plug out :P.

But really, you do not need tools to do the job. Just use your finger nails and pull it out by using the little gaps available around the area.

lol You guys are in luck. Back in the day when I used to do LED climate control/clock conversions, I saved more of my bulbs. I got about 28 clock bulbs. Some have green condoms, and other got blue and some just clear. I am not 100% sure that all of them work, but most of them should since all I did was remove them and replaced it with LEDs. So basically all you have to do is pull out your burnt clock bulb and replace it with this other oem clock bulb into your bulb holder and it is good as new. Again, not 100% sure that all these bulbs work and there is no way for me to test out each bulb either. I will sell 5 bulbs for $5 shipped. That's a much better deal than honda. 5 bulbs will cost about $25. So if anyone needs any, let me know. I also got any other replacement bulbs for the dash or odometer.

I don't know the size of the bulb. I just have a whole bunch of them left over when I used to do LED dash light conversions and I just saved all the clock bulbs. I still got like 15 or so left over I think.
