You local auto parts store carries most of the lightbulbs used on your bus. I usually order them online by part number because I like the Osram bulbs with the nickel base like the original bulbs. They are bright, long lasting and about the same price anyway. Some european autos must have a nickel base but aircooled VWs are not this sensitive.

Location Volts/Watts Fiche Part Number US Part Number Osram ANSI
Headlight 7" round (2) 12V/55W/60W N 017 614 2 ZVP 118 114 6014/6024
Instrument lighting (x) 12V/1.2W N 017 751 2 2721 might also be VDO 600-809
Side markers (4) 12V/14W N 017 717 2 ZVP 118 816 1895
Dome light (1) 12V/10W N 017 723 2 6411
Front turn signals (2) 12V/5W/21W N 017 738 2 ZVP 118 034 7528 1157

Looking for that little black instrument light bulb holder? 141-957-397A (it's the same part on other aircooled as well as a few watercooled VWs). Might also be VDO 600-808.
