Concerning the courtesy lights, what do your units actually look like?

Different courtesy light units will have different bulb fitments
k13r4n

k13r4n

They will be one of three bulbs(and sometimes a mix of)
Either-
T10 (also known as W5W or 501)

Festoon (38mm or 40mm, doesn't matter which as the contacts inside the light can be bent to accomodate them)-

H6W, (also known as 433 or BAX9S)
[url="http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/370700058442?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649"]http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/370700058442?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649[/url]

It's best to pop open the light and compare the bulbs to be totally sure.
The standard light my car was built with took a festoon, the maplight one i replaced it with took a festoon and two H6W and the ambient one i have now takes three T10, so as you can see there are various combinations and types used therefore best to look.
k13r4n
Ok guys got a festoon in the front need a red 1 (if legal) and preferably led and can't get the rear one out
Stoney871
Any colour led is legal as long as it's not flashing.

k13r4n

Please do mate, would be interested in this! What Focus have you got?
k13r4n
I have a 1.6tdci titanium rolling on a ten plate
Stoney871
The ambient light units are available from europeanparts but aren't cheap.
Or here-

Very easy to install though.

Brigante
That should do the job nicely mate

Similar to what I have
k13r4n
ok I shall wack an order for 1 and any recommendations for the rear light its a wedge bulb but I don't think the ones in the footwells will fit its worth a try though but if not any ideas
Brigante
What do you have in your footwells?

A decent 5SMD wedge would do the job
k13r4n
I got the ones u linked me to with 25 LEDs per bulb
k13r4n
