LED Question :

You will need a resistor that equals the resistance of the original bulb in parallel with the LED.

Id run a camera into the engine and look before pulling it. It may have been replaced and dropped by mistake. It looks stretched out of spec. Hate to see you pull it and find it was a simple fix.
