The ones on the first picture!

Check the wattage! There are different ones! I think MB uses 2 or 3 watts.

The first bulbs exist in 1.2 and 1;8 watt. With a higher wattage heat build-up will destroy the interior of there "housing".

sjsfiji,

Do a search on central+vent+bulbs. I answered that question a short while ago. It isn't difficult once you know how!

Sorry sjsfiji !

I was to hasty : omit the "central+" and you will be right there.
Thus enter in search "vent+bulbs" and find all the answers.
Good luck!

Danny
