Hi

Sorry for another lighting thread :unsure: , I would like to change my boot light and roof lights , I'm not sure what kind I would need or what type of light?

I gather most of you who change the lights inside change them to LED?

My car is a mk2.5

cheers

hi mate,
the boot light is w5w fitment and you can fit a 46smd cluster in the boot light no problem,
and if you want a dual light in the boot you can download my guide on PDF for fitting an additional boot light,
as for fitting the interior bulbs to led,
i have changed all of the w5w ones thats the visor map lights and the map lighte that are either side of the front centre light,
but i have not changed the ones that illuminate when the doors are unlocked because they can stay on continuosly when changed to led type bulbs due to the nature of the led and its low power consumption,

and the glove box is also a w5w

I added some prism puddle lights from halfords on each side of the boot. They are quite bright and only 12.99.

Hi mate,
all of the above are exactly the same bulb types that i have in each of the fitments,
although the may not be the same suppliers that i purchased each of them from.

i find the red 5smd footwell lights bright enough mate,
dont see them during the day but the give a good spread of light in the dark.

hi mate,
yes the rear footwell lights are custom fit,
http://www.ebay.co.u...4980818&afsrc=1
ive run the cables through the centre console and spliced them in to the front footwell light loom.
then stuck the light pods to the top of the rear footwell vents with double sided sticky pads, they are quality and out of sight too.
ive still to take some night pictures though.

thanks mate,
took a few weeks to arrive from houston texas U.S.A
but they were less than £10 including delivery and 100% worth it IMO.

thanks mate,
i used some double sided sticky pads and stuck them to the top centre of the blowers that are under the seats.
then fished the cable under the carpet in to the centre console and spliced them in to the drivers side footwell loom,
the cable that came with them was almost long enough to reach the front footwell loom, i was just five inches short of reaching the front loom.

Hi

Im finding it really hard to get the the centre reading bulbs out , it says turn anti-clockwise but they go so far but they will not pull out.

they are housed in a black socket that must be removed to get to the bulb.

Can anyone give me some advice who has removed them?

thanks

They do pull out but you sometimes find that the copper tracks on the light module hook onto the bulb carrier.
A bit of jiggling will help.
