Hey guys, been cleaning out my car and noticed I have footwell bulb holders, but no bulbs in them? Not sure why Ford didn't put a bulb in... actually wait, anything from Ford is never free; but that's besides the point. What bulbs do I need for the footwell?

Looking for red ones to match the trip and radio, can anyone recommend some? Wouldn't mind some nice bright ones, but not so much that my car is lit like a Christmas tree from the outside.

Thanks guys!

You need T10 (w5w), what are commonly called wedge bulbs.
This type is half decent.

These are the ones I have. Not sure if they're too bright for your taste though (hard to judge in pics as I deliberately adjusted setting to show the light more)

Yeah I only saw them today, was like, what are these at the ends of wires lol.

iNath, how long have they taken to get to you? Just worried because every time I use Hong Kong it takes like 3 weeks >.< just those look pretty good to me :P

Do they work whenever ignition is on or just when door's open?

Am I right in saying Ford fit the gubbings etc for interior lights but only put the bulbs in certain models? So I could buy some bulbs and have footwell lighting?

They do take a couple of weeks. That seller used to hold stock in the UK and ship from Wales but I think he's run out or stopped doing it.

They come on when you unlock the car and go off when you lock or turn on the ignition.

There's no set rule to whether Ford put that wiring loom in or not, they only way to tell is to check your own vehicle.

Update: The seller in Hong Kong that I recommended sent me blue ones on 7th and arrived this morning, so 9 days in total and that includes 2 weekends.
