    I just replaced mine in my 430: I believe they are the same. I pulled one and took it to the local auto parts place and easily found the correct bulbs in LED, but they had the regular bulbs too.
    Bulb number was 6418 for the LED.
    Pull one of your bulbs and match the size.

    I have a 2003 360 Spider and have swapped out all of my bulbs with Sylvania LED's. As stated above, use 6418 for the license plate, Front Trunk and Glove Box. The interior lights are 168 or 194. I also swapped out my clock bulb for an LED and now I can read it any time of the day or night.

    What number bulb do you use for the clock?

    For the clock in my 360 Spider I ordered number 74-CWHP3: 74 LED bulb - 3SMD LED Miniature Wedge, Cool White from Super Bright Led's in St. Louis, MO. You can contact them at 866-590-3533. The bulbs are very small so patients is needed to install. Took me about an hour but it is so worth the effort. I installed them in mid-2018 so I've had a couple of Summers and as I stated earlier, I can read the clock top up or down, day or night.

    Check out their website at www.superbrightleds.com

    I've ordered from them in the past with good success before Sylvania LED's were more widely available.

    I thought I would post a photo of the clock with the LED bulb installed. While the photo looks very bright it is not distracting at all when driving.

    Has it made the clock any more accurate? Mine doesn't keep time with a damn.

    Fortunately my clock is very accurate. It was just so dim that I could not read it during the day time.

    Don't mean to hijack the thread but how do you program the 360 clock? I have a Euro Spider...not sure if is displays differently than a U.S. version but it appears like it's in 24hr army time. I will definitely be changing the bulb too!

    On my clock there are two small buttons, one on either side of the clock. Press the left button to set the hour and the right side button to set minutes. My clock is in 24 hr. format all of the time (also my preference)..

    After reading your question again, is your clock in 24 hr. format?

    It is in the 24hr format, yes. I wasn't able to find this I'm the manual. Perhaps my buttons are not working. But odd that the clock itself works. Do you have to hold the buttons or just press each one?

    Checked my owners manual and as I read it, the clock cannot be changed. I just press the buttons to change the hours and minutes.

    I asked this question a couple years ago, they (360/430) are all 24 hour clocks
