I read that it's a pain and you have to use a soldering iron so it's too much hassle for me

The same seller has relisted them though :) yehh that's the only downfall, was just over a week delivery. Hope the uk ones are as good.

after finally putting them in, i think it would have been worth ordering the ones from hong kong! the ones i got literally just have a small circle of blue shining down and does not spread through the whole footwell. very dissapointed

Liamboyall7 welcome. I have changed the footwell bulbs, both sets of roof lights as well as the light in the boot. You need to order some 501 bulbs, I believe from memory that there are some links on here for them. If not just go to eBay no need for super expensive ones at all. If you want more information let me know

Silly basic question but how do you replace footwell bulb? Asian do you twist it out or pull it out and can I remove it while the light is still on when the door is open because I can't get down to it otherwise and also the main interior light at top of your head how do I go around replacing that size of led bulb? And twist or pull rather ask then go ahead and brake something

Footwell bulbs just pull out, they will be hot though if you do it with the door open, so either be quick or use gloves or a cloth.

Front light, prise the clear lens off, the bulb pulls out of its clips at each end, it is a 38mm festoon bulb, if yours has map lights they are the same size as the footwell bulbs and come out the same way.
