Fiesta Bulbs List

190 posts in this topic

^ It's probably worth trying a pair of the Philips bulbs to see how you get on with them. Both get a lot of praise on here but it seems like the Osrams are more popular. And I'll repeat my usual advice which is to get the dipped beam adjusted so that you can see a good distance ahead.

You can get a set of HIDs for the same price as those they are brighter give great vision and last longer

See my parts for sale on thread "philf1s Spirit Blue Fiesta ST180 parts for sale"

^ I approve of your choice to use halogen bulbs instead of LED :). I replaced all my interior bulbs with this one: 

https://www.amazon.co.uk/INTENSE-halogen-position-2825UHCBI-02B-blister/dp/B005OK4PR0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1461690561&sr=8-1&keywords=osram+cool+blue+w5w

And this one for the courtesy light: http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/categories/mtec-bulbs/mini-auto-bulbs/festoon/264-44mm

I wouldn't recommend that festoon bulb though, it was a bit too big and I had to bend the contacts to get it to fit.

I used the same halogen bulbs Phil. The Osram bulbs are good.

Cheers for the links Willy & Phil, I take it they are easy to install?

Pull the old ones out. Push the new ones in. Be careful not to burn your fingers.

I ended up buying a whole rake of bulb after reading Willy's guide. Thanks so much for the handy links.

Do you have a link for bulbs on the roof aswell? How easy are those ones to install?

^ The roof ones (courtesy lights) are the same W5W type, except for the middle one in the front light unit which is a festoon similar to the one I linked above, but you need a smaller size so it will fit more easily. I'm not sure exactly what the size of the festoon should be, but all others are W5W.

Edit: I think I was wrong about the festoon, might only be the ST that has that.

Yours isn't an ST so all the bulbs are w5w / 501. If you have map reading lights then it's 3 in the front, 2 for the foot wells and 1 for the rear seats (if you have one on the 3 door) also 1 for the glove box and the boot.

Yes I think you're right, I forgot not all Fiestas have that festoon bulb in the middle. Is it only the ST that has that?

So, once again I'm having to get another yet of H7s, yet again the left one has gone out, is there a known fault for the left head light?

I'm having to replace my left one as well
