Didn't realise you could fit the bulbs upside down as they only fit one way in the headlamps! lol.
Sorted out the driver side as I couldn't tighten the screw that night due to not having the right tools. Father in laws toolbox in Dublin is lacking badly in everything lol.
 
So far, very happy with the purchase. Thinking of upgrading the side lights now to LEDs. I found these ones on Ebay. Would they work and be a straight swap?

Also thinking of upgrading the interior lights to LEDs. Which ones would I need?
Thanks :)

The T10 you linked there, I've got them in mine over a year now very happy,
Use a flat head long screwdriver to remove the parking bulbs,
Push in the screwdriver,
Gently twist,
Slide it out,

Interior bulbs
Side front interior bulbs and visor lights are all T10
Rear light and centre light I think are T15
Glove box is T10 but I recommend a 12smd pad with T10 plug
Foot well lighting is also T10
And boot Leigh is T10

Cheers Lenny. Ordered them off Ebay along with 2 pads. One for the glove box and one for the boot. Can't wait to get it all and fit them in. Realised how useful proper lights are in the car in these dark winter days. Pictures to follow once installed.

When you get the pads,
And you have the T10 plugs,
Get some glue, and fill the inside of the T10 plug,
Leave it to dry for 24hrs before fitting,

This will top the cables from moving and causing a loose contact connection.
I had this problem with them before but once the cup is filled the cables don't move and the work 100%
Have you done the rear foot well lighting yet?
Its great for finding the kids toys they have dropped in the dark.

Thanks for the info Lenny. I got the bulbs delivered this week and waiting for the weekend to install them in the side lights and the interior lights. Can't wait to see the difference inside at night.
LED pad still not arrived yet :(

Came back from work early today and decided to put in the LEDs inside the car lights. It was already getting dark and I didn't realise what I was supposed to do to get old bulbs out. Armed with my trusty box of screwdrivers and my little helper in the shape of my son (He did hand me some screwdrivers to help).

So took me about 1/2 hr in total with some fiddling to get the LEDs working. To be honest, it was quite finicky as it needed adjusting in some of them. In the end they all work and I am very happy with the result. Here are some pictures:

I think it's a great improvement over the stock yellow bulbs. Well worth the effort :)

Looks brilliant mate, hard to believe they use less battery
You can fit an extra two T10 in the rear unit if you swap it for a front one with the map lights,
Great for rear seat passengers,

That's not a bad idea Lenny. Might look into that as it does make a big difference. I can't wait to get home later on and swap out the side lights in the headlamps. I got 10 LEDs in the end and they were decently priced, shipped from UK.

Since I got 2 LEDs left, I might tackle the footwell lights for the front in the coming weeks.
Any guides around for that?

Thanks
