2013 versa s bulbs

I have a 2013 versa s sedan. The owners manual ,back where it tells you what type of bulbs it takes, lists this "front clearance light which takes a w5w bulb. What is a front clearance light and can somebody show me a pic of one. And what's another name for a w5w bulb?

Thanks

w means watts. 5 watts.

I bet its a 168 little bulb. Comes on with parking lamps.

W5W bulbs are higher-wattage (and therefore brighter) than either a 168 or 194, although both should work in a pinch.

Well....this day and age with LED, Halogen, Eco and other technology the brightness of the bulb should be measured and representative in lumens vs the power consumed wattage. You see this on house hold light bulbs when it comes to led and fluorescent.

I typically go for the silver star for reverse lamps and LL or long life for the rest and eco bulbs for the head lamps and fogs.
