Tail light replacement light bulbs for a 2014 Toyota Rav4 LXE

Hi everyone!
Is anyone here owning a 2014 Toyota Rav4 LXE? Our is one year old from the time of purchase at our local CarMax. One tail light bulb is burnt out; we wanted to replace all of them, per the owner's manual. There is no marking on the existing ones, so we depended on AutoZone and O'Reilly to get us the right ones. Both have sold us the wrong ones, either too big or too small. I am not sure where to go from here. Any idea? We have already been stopped and warned by the PD.



SoCal for now.

Looks like it should be: BP7443LL

Factory part numbers are either: 9098111067 or 9098113044 or 9098113043 depending on which light you actually need.

Yup, basic Toyota bulb of that era. My 2013 Prius uses them.

They LOOK very similar to a 3457, and I bet that is what you were given.

I'm a little leary of depending on Autozone or O'reilly's for information on car parts, having better luck with sources used by repair shops such as NAPA and the like.

If it, or any auto bulb that isn't LED needs replacing, try and get the Long Life version. They really do last about twice as long. And if replacing a headlight, replace both (long life, of course) and keep the good one for the next time one goes bad, and you have a temp bulb.

I get almost all my auto bulbs from RockAuto.com. They list the Long Life bulbs, and you can get cheap shipping on small stuff like this. All 3 Buicks use the same bulbs, as do both of our Mercurys, so I always buy extras and have stuff on hand. You can Google a 5% RockAuto coupon to pay for at least part of the sales tax.

Racer X, you're the second person recommended RockAuto.com. Will check out and get the Long Life bulbs.

Lost in space, I have thought of NAPA but none near us. We are surrounded by AutoZone and O'Reilly especially the former.

Thanks everyone for the quick response.

RockAuto is great if you aren't in a need it right this minute situation. Bulbs and wiper blades have a massive mark-up at auto parts stores. I always have new ones on hand from RockAuto.
