As I began putting the finishing touches on wiring I began tracking a little marker light problem....then I noticed something I haven't noticed in 2 years.  My left rear marker light is orange and the R rear is red.  I prefer the red so if anyone wants to trade I'll trade yah.
That being said the red one seems aftermarket....it has part #'s  and a brand name (which I have already forgotten).

Sometimes the more I think about something the less I think about something.    As soon as I save a little money my bus finds out.                                      Why grab a plane when you can take the bus ?                         If I'm wrong 10% of the time how can the "Queen" be right 100%

They are supposed to be red.
Does yours look like this? If so, I'd like to trade with you.

The number on my red one is "PILOT 7930L S.A.E."

Is that a left rear orange or red?  My RR rear  is red my LR is orange.  I would like to have two reds.  My RR is a Pilot but I did not write down the #s my LR has no markings  visible from the outside.

The picture is of an orange one, I have both.
The number came off a red one.

The PD4501 used the same red lens as the 4104 in the rear. The 4501 used the same shape lens for the front, except the color was amber (orange).

That is why I have both.

Zub, both my rear corner lights are amber, came that way. The center three are red??

There isn't much doubt in my mind that all the rear were originally red but I'm leaving them amber.

Mine are not original, they are plastic and not too hard to find. I got a couple of new ones on the internet but don't remember now where. I can find out if you need to know.

In my case the color is academic, none of my running lights work since the rears shorted out a while back!! I disconnected the rears but the fronts just decided to quit a short time later also??

Turn indicators facing forward maybe either white or orange.  Forward facing upper clearance lights (left and right sides with 3 in the middle) are orange.  Any side clearance light is orange.  Rear side and 3 inner clearance lights must be red.  Rear facing running light and stop light must be red.  Dedicated turn indicator light maybe orange (and only when turning, no running light), or all red.  This is the DOT lighting scheme now. Whatever the bus had on it when you bought it (like orange side lights in the rear) don't matter to the DOT when they write you an incorrect lighting ticket.  Good Luck, TomC

Hey Gus,
I'd be interested in knowingmore about the plastic replacements. I've looked, but can't seem to find any that match the OEM lens.

Thanks!
