License Plate Light Bulb....

What is the license plate bulb number for the 2006 GTO? Don't need the oem GM number, but need the "industry trade number", such as 1157, 168, 194 etc. Not in owners manual or Sylvania online chart.
Anyone replaced one? Easy to do?

Thanks!!!!

Those are 168 bulbs. You can also use 168LL (long life). Real easy to change. Push the tab in on the left side of the license light housing and it lifts out, twist the enclosure that holds the bulb, pull the bulb out, push the new one in, put it back together and snap the housing back in place.

That's what I am looking for... also looking into LED for dome. (Have one in my SS Balt) and really like that upgrade! Still looking into that. Lot of different opinians out there.
E-Bay seems to have the best prices, but am afraid of..."You get what U pay for"... if U know what I mean.
