A dodgy bulb producing sympathetic radio waves?

One signal washing out another.

Find out what bulb your focus takes and you will get a Cree that fits from Alltronix.co.uk

thats the type of bulb that it is,
Its a wedge type. Like an oversized parking bulb,
Log on to alltronix.co.uk and search for Cree W16W

looks great Bryan,
You may also be interested in fitting a reverse lens from a left hand drive focus, giving you a clear rear fog light and the ability to fit a second reverse light,
See my Guide here which is also available to download in PDF format with links to suppliers:

W16W
Means the reverse bulb you require for your specific model is a wedge type 16watt bulb,
You require the Cree equivalent of the W16W which will shine brighter than 16W but wont ever get even half as hot as the stock bulbs.

the dual reverse guide shows you how to fit both rear fog light and reverse light in the same unit,
Cree sell a red fog light aswell which has a frosted lens to diffuse the light better for fog conditions,
Theres nothing illegal about a clear lens aslong as the bulb shines red.
ive also fitted an "auto off" relay to mine so if i have my rear fog light on,
And i put the car in to reverse,
The relay turns off the red fog light for the duration reverse is active,
Looks cosmetically pleasant because red and white never shine together.
Its all in the guide anyway.

its not that difficult,
If you can peel a banna you can splice a cable, much the same stripping to the core :lol:
Youll need a dremil style tool aswell fairly cheap from Maplin electronics,
And some glue.
Will take around 3 hours at the most to fit cables,
1 hour to cut and bond light unit,
Then 8 hours dring time.
Well worth it though

Hi Lenny

 

Do you think the cree bulbs would be a viable replacement for a tail stop light?

Hi Lenny

hi Tom,
No mate. I wouldnt use led for brake lights just yet,
They are bright but i personally wouldnt trust them to be good enough for day light driving.

If you have dual filament bulbs stop&tail in the same bulb, cree wont work for this fitment because they are single filament stop or tail not both,

However,
If you have the RS style tail units you then have a single filament brake light socket where you could try a cree led in daylight and view if its sufficent for the purpose or not,
But overall
I personally wouldnt & led are currently only single filament

I've found getting CREE brake light bulbs for the LED style taillamps to be a non-starter :( the original bulbs are a very rare fitment having both staggered and offset pins, it's hard enough getting replacement bulbs - I had to go to 2 Ford dealers before getting one and that was all they had in stock. Course plan B you could get one of the more commonly available bulbs, file one of the pins off it and try soldering a new one on but I wouldn't know how robust something like that would last.
