1995 Camry parkers

Ok, So the parker has not worked for a while.

I decided to change the bulb.

They tell me I need a 12v 5w T-10mm wedge, so I bought one.

I pulled out the globe holder from the lens assembly, removed the old globe, inserted the new one and it fell out. Too small. Just rattles around. Doesn't make contact.

What globe do I need?

I would have expected that T10 is the correct size for side parking and number plate lights. T20 is for rear tail lights and brake lights.

I have bought various LED bulbs on eBay [from different China sellers] and usually have to spread the contact wires to get a good contact. 

Alternatively, take the old globe with you and go to your local auto store.

That is what I did do. It is very loose in the socket. It fell out. I thought that explained why the light wasn't working, wrong size bulb.

T-10 is the correct globe. I would say that the globe holder spring has either worn or broken.
