All festoons are 39mm, but not all the bulbs are festoons. Like in the two rear courtesy lights and the front center overhead...they are festoon in the center and the spots are some other weird bulb. Trunk, license plate, door sills, and center front are all festoons 39MM in length. A 36MM bulb can be made to fit If you get 7 festoons you will be able to replace all but the license plate- only use excellent quality for any exposed exterior as they will throw code.
