I found this in the owners manual. It seems they are LED and don't even talk about changing them.

One image for the 4 cylinder and one for the 6.

I just got my TLX and want to change the interior LED lights to a different color. Did you ever find the sizes required? and how hard was it to change them?

Take a look in the mods section. I believe there is more info there.

i tried playing around with interior lights.
long story short, from a DIY standpoint......dont bother changing them as either they are already LED and they look like they are in a proprietary setup that is not as straightforward as we would hoped it to be.

the only lights you can change are:
- trunk lights
- door courtesy lights

they are both T10 halogens and can be changed to LEDs. you can find pics in instructions in my "first DIY mod" thread
my first DIY mod

reverse lights are of a much bigger bulb size. not exactly sure what the size is, but here's a pic compared to the T10 68SMD LED light i used for my trunk (which is pretty much the biggest T10 LED bulb available out there). im not going to bother changing the reverse lights because i am sure it will not be as cheap as the T10 LED lights and not sure if it will make much difference (not cost effective)

license plate lights are already LEDs and i have trouble taking the housing off the trunk. not touching those either

I tried some LEDs for reverse lights in my Civic and I was never able to find a bulb strong enough to be of any use. I think I'll be keeping the stock bulbs in the TLX.

I'm sure the trunk light would be a good upgrade. That stock bulb is weak.
