I broke a couple of instrument cluster bulbs in my 03 Altima. I know that the size is 73. What brand bulb does Nissan use?

Not entirely sure, as I haven't dismantled the dash displays on this car, but IIRC the lighting is soldered in. There was someone on the forum (or another) that was taking payment for rebuilding dash lighting with different colored LED's. IIRC think @4DZC had them done on his dash...? Lawrence, could you help with this thought? I'm pulling a blank.

Le did my cluster. I am sure there was soldering involved because he mentioned it when I asked. Sadly he has moved on from Nissan as he hasnt been around in sometime now...years. AWESOME person..truly AWESOME! He also did my Frontier's cluster.

Thanks, Bud! Wasn't Le the one who did the ridiculously awesome quad retrofit?

Mine are just bulbs that lock and twist. I have some 73 bulbs installed but they're dimmer than the original ones.

For those who want to know, the bulb brand Nissan uses is Toshiba. I found the name etched on some old bulbs I have.
