I'm not sure, my Wagner catalog shows a bunch of different PAR36 bulbs. The PAR36 refers to the size of the sealed beam.

What kind of terminals does your stock bulb use?

Did you find any at AutoZone or Advance Auto? Bring in your old bulb and see if you can find a match.

Napa carries all kinds of spotlight stuff. Go to the store and read their Big Book. The online site is lacking.

Why not just get them from Unity or a Unity dealer so you know you are getting the factory stuff and dont have to go through the hassle?

The bulb size should be PAR36 as Metro said. (that's the size of the bulb you pictured above)

Most autoparts stores won't have them, but a Napa should.


FYI, you can also pick up replacement PAR36s at Lowes (maybe H/D as well, but I know they have them at Lowes) in various wattages - go to the landscape lighting section of electrical/lighting department. They normally have screw and male spade combo for the terminals. If it is screw-on only you can snip off the spade terminals on your spotlight wiring and just crimp on a ring terminal.

They always have a glass lens and body.

Make sure to buy the SPOT beam pattern and not flood.




If your local store doesn't stock much outdoor lighting parts, I'd stick with the Napa suggestion - or any commercial lighting supplier near you (just bring the bulb in. These are extremely common and used for 4.5" spot/well lights for low-voltage (12v) outdoor lighting)

FYI, I checked the Wagner catalog and most of the PAR36 offerings have 100-300 hour lifespans. Granted you aren't going to run them for long periods of time, I just thought you'd want to know.

there is no hassle if you get thr right bulb, i sell them to all the police departments around here and they never have had any problem with the Wagner replacements, and also you can tell when a Unity bulb is being used like said before the front will get a yellowish tint on them, strange, but GE, Wagner, Sylvaina, Phillips are all high quailty replacements for our spot lights, and at the price and avalibilty of them you cant beat that
