Hey team

Just thought I'd throw the question out there, I recently purchased an ef clock off ebay only to find that the bulb was faulty, that's what I get for buying parts online

Now I had some old bulbs lying around from when I replaced my cluster and I have replaced the bulb in the clock with one from the instrument cluster; one of the blue ones like an indicator light or something like that

It's working now and I think it would be fine as its still running through a filter and all but just wondering if there is an issue with different wattage or running continually or anything like that to worry about

Cheers

Yeah I wondered that, is there any way to tell wattage just from looking at the bulb/bulb holder
