    I don,t know the size of the bulb. But I have heard of problems when changing a "blown" bulb. Might be a good idea to take the respective fuse out before you replace the bulb, when you get the info" you are after.
    EDIT.
    Here you go have a read of this. It was from one of our members




    If the glove box light bulb blows it might be a good idea to remove the glove box and disconnect it so as not to short the bulb. As it might disturb a module. You could try disconnecting the battery for 5 minutes to reset the modules.

    going to remove rear boot light and fit 48 LED panel in each side using the middle of the three ventilation holes. I have sourced some replacement interior light lenses to cut up to make a proper looking light fitting...
