License Plate Light Part ??

I have an 03 ranger and need 2 license plate lights..I went to checkers and they couldn't find the lights and said to call Ford for a part #. I can get pics if needed, but if you guys know a site where I can order them or a part # please let me know. Thank you

If you're looking just for the bulbs look for 194 miniature wedge bulbs.

Thanks, I went to both autozone and checkers and both places I had the guys come look at the connects and they had no idea what would fit. They both looked up my truck and gave me the same bulbs, the 194's...I bought this other adapter Im just going to splice in. I don't know what the deal is..but whatever. Thanks guys.

Splice in an adaptor, WTF??!! Use 194's, they BELONG there!!
There's another reason NOT to go to AutoZone or Checkers!!! Sounds like a bunch of monkeys over there.....they can't even use their computers properly. When you went there and asked for assistance, did they ask questions pertaining to engine size, drivetrain type, and number or doors?? Gotta love the "computer search" assistance they do. If it wasn't for the databases on those PC's, all the dummies behind the counter would be a smart as the bulb you were looking for.

I just really can't stand useless parts counter staff at auto part stores.

are we talking about the whole assembly or just the bulb?

Im kind of confused here.

1- Buy the 2 pack of 194's.
2- Slide under the back bumper and twist each socket out of the bumper.
3- Remove the bad bulbs.
4- Pop in the new ones and twist the sockets back in.
5- hit the headlight switch to verify they work.
