Hi all, desperately need to upgrade my interior lighting in my 2010 focus s but wanted some feedback from you guys and gals in the know of what type of bulbs/ LEDs to purchase and where from?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated and could save me some money buying a load of old crap!! ;)

Many thanks
Gav

Hi Mate,

I've been getting my LED's from this guy off ebay and have been very pleased with them - http://stores.ebay.c...n-jp2002?_rdc=1

I'm assuming yours is a mk2.5 model so you will need the following:

Interior
Footwell - 501 Wedge Bulbs 12 Cluster
Map Reading Lights - 501 Wedge Bulb 4 Cluster
Main Front Interior Light - Festoon Bulb you will need to check the correct length
Rear Interior Light - 501 Wedge Bulb 4 Cluster

Exterior
Front Sidelights - 501 Wedge Bulb Ultra Power
Puddle Lights (Approach Lights in wing mirror) - 501 Wedge Bulbs SMD's
Number Plate Lights - 501 Wedge Bulbs SMD's

Hope this helps.

:)

Gav, I've not heard of that bulb type before...can you post a pic as Google only posts up house light bulbs for 6wx?

Hi. Has any one upgraded there lights on a 2002 focus ?


Twizzel, the theory for a 2002 model should be the same...the only possible differences is the number plate bulbs these could be festoon and the map reading lights.

The best advise I can offer would be to take the covers off and check all the bulb types then go shopping on ebay...shop link above.

Happy shopping :)
