A front indicator light on my Honda Civic 2012 (Dutch market if relevant) is dead, so I'm trying to change it.
The owner manual says:
- front indicator: orange/silver bulb,
- rear indicator: orange bulb.
Looking at both, the front one has indeed a silvery glow. But looking at what's written on it, one says: 12VPY21W (brand osram), the other SVPY21W12V (brand Philips).
Except the 'SV' in the Philips one, it does not look that different, and it is tricky to be sure what I would be buying online (silvery or not).
Does this silvery thing has an actual point, beyond possibly aesthetic? In other words, can I buy any 12VPY21W, not matter if silvery or not, and be OK?
