    It's a 12V 6W bulb. Partnumber: N400809000004

    To change it you have to remove the outer Mirror case.

    First detach the mirror, then fold the mirrors into the close position. Using a screwdriver push the metal clip which is revealed inwards and you should be able to slide the mirror case off. The buld has it's own little housing, you should be able to get it out by now.

    Can't remember which way, but its either the mirror tilted to the very up or the very down position. In the gap you will see a little spring loaded hook, just unhook it and the mirror should come off.

    P.S.: Becarful, make sure you catch the mirror. The driver's side mirror is darn expensive!
