Can you rotate the LED bulb 90 or 180 degrees? It will decrease the light output and will not cause glare. Don't worry, they won't emit infrared (heat), so by pointing the yellow phosphor part (emitting surface) towards the plastic will not melt anything.Leo2005 wrote:

I used these: http://www.vleds.com/shop-bulb-numbers/vanity-led.htmliRogue wrote:What type of bulb used for vanity lights?
Yes I totally agree with you. As for the replacement bulb the closest bulb to the size is vanity bulb for mirror as stated above. It is slightly bigger so you would have to push to contacts away from each other further and vanity bulb doesn't have pins on the side so it's not going to sit tight in the contacts you will have to make some kind of brackets or glue it (use your imagination) in order to keep them in place. Plus on top of it the circuit board provides more light anyway and it is pretty easy to install. Go for it...it's worth it.yi_dennis wrote:The position of the trunk light is horrible. I was hoping to find just a replacement bulb.
I was about to b**** about it the other day but when I came to the dealership they told me it is applied to SL models only. Now I see yours is SL and you don't have it either. Not sure how luxury the extra bulb in the car but my fiance doesn't have it either in her 2014 Corolla. So when it gets warmer I will install the light in both cars. I do see a hole which looks like is for the bulb in the Rogue's glove box btw.iRogue wrote:Is it me or the Rogue doesn't have a glove compartment light? I looked through the manual and it appears as if there should be one.
There's no kit available but all you need is a small switch (similar to hood pin) preferably with plastic pin and 2 wires. You'll run one positive wire to the constant source like battery, cigarette lighter etc. and negative wire throw that pin. Add any bulb you like and stick it on top of the box. Here's an example of adding led circuit board in glove box:iRogue wrote:This is absurd! Does anyone know if there's a kit or something available to retrofit a bulb into the compartment?
