A headlight burned out in my '04 Camry. No sweat – I keep a HI beam and a LO beam spare in the glovebox. Changed it in a shopping center parking lot. Clean hands! Then I went to the national-chain auto parts store across the lot to get a new spare bulb.
There was a display for LED lamps that looked pretty well stocked, but the display for incandescent bulbs was almost empty. I did find the type I wanted (9006), but not the specific variety.
Is the paucity of available bulbs an instance of the “supply chain problem”, or are the stores drawing down on incandescent bulbs as the newer cars change over to LEDs?
(Is my car going to become obsolete because I can’t get replacement headlights??? Am I going to have to change to “equivalent” (Hah!) LEDs, and suffer the problems we see here from that change???)
