    What is the USA suitable sub part number for tail lamp? I did search and nothing. Whatever I've been using...only last a few weeks and the running element always burns out. I must have the wrong size. Please advise. Thx DM

    Walmart or any auto parts store should have them.

    1157 or 2057, they're pretty much interchangeable.

    You can buy sturdier versions, they say something like heavy duty on the package.

    +1 buy the Heavy Duty version, even with the vibration of a LC4 it will last many years.
