Car restorers know answers to the question,"How long does it take to replace an instrument panel light bulb?" range from "five minutes" to "I started taking apart the instrument panel two months ago, and I still haven't found that %!@# bulb!" Hard to reach bulbs and any other bulbs that you only want to change once, can now be replaced with new LED bulbs. Here are just a few benefits of using an LED bulb for your automotive lighting needs: LED bulbs do not have a filament wire like incandescent bulbs, making them better equipped to withstand vibration LED bulbs last longer, use less power and give off less heat compared to incandescent bulbs LED bulbs typically give off more light and even come in multiple color choices LED bulbs have fewer part numbers, making them more universal While LED bulbs do cost a lot more than incandescent bulbs, this is less scary when you consider that many incandescent bulbs start at less than $0.25 at RockAuto.com. It could be worth $10 or even $20 to avoid disassembling an instrument panel a second time.
