Received the bulbs i ordered from e*bay today .I can confirm that the bulbs are "501" capless type.
It took less than 5 mins to remove clear bulbs and replace with red,straightforward swap.
Looks better than clear as now in keeping with rest of lighting.Looks cool when lit up.
I would add that these bulbs only cost 2.98 inc post, for the pair.Such a cheap and easy swap to do.
Hope this helps anyone wishing to do the same.

The ones i ordered were "501" "T10" type being the 10mm i think. These fit perfectly.The lime green ones you are looking at are "T11" poss 11mm,but there seems to be some leeway in the fitting,so may fit.No harm trying.

Sounds cool - agree it would be more in keeping with the rest of the lighting. Might try that myself too - or rather order the bulbs and get someone else to fit them :)

Bulbs just pull out straight down, no twist.
If you need to, the bulb holder can be twisted 1/4 turn to release from bracket.
I found it easy to pull bulb down,but you need a firm grip on bulb to remove.
When fitting new bulb use a tissue to hold bulb,stops fingermarks which might shorten life of bulb.
Looks good in the dark.
