This company has a very thick catalog of just Automotive 12v LED Lights in addition to lights for other applications. If you contact them and request just the Automotive catalog they will send you one or you can look at it on line in .pdf (IIRC)

This is an old post, but LEDs are available now that are tailored to the Riv, and even dim reasonably well, with a bit of flicker, but they are much brighter and whiter.
www.Precision LED.com.

Question: how do the red door courtesy lights come out?
I think I'm prying the lens off instead, but don't want to force the entire unit out just yet.
Need to install the LEDs.
Thanks.

Don't pry the lens, you will break it.  The entire assembly pops out.  Put a thin screwdriver in deep and pop the entire thing out.  Then twist out the socket and replace the bulb.  Pry the red one from the inboard (right side in picture)side.

I would use a red LED 194 bulb. If you put a white one in, it will bleach out the lens.

Sounds good, Larry.
Of course I was prying from the outside!

Red bulb is definitely in order.

Thanks.
