Mk7 Fiesta Number Plate Issue

8 posts in this topic

Alright folks,

Today I tried to change the number plate bulbs to LED's but struggled to get the holder out. It now seems as though I have damaged the retaining clip, as the holder no longer stays in place and is quite loose. Any one else had this problem? Or is it likely that they will just need replaced?

Cheers

I did manage to get the bulbs changed but in the process of doing so I seem to have blown a fuse. So basically I now have the following:-

Rear (lights on bulb) left hand side not working

Number plate bulbs - both not working

Front sidelight - left hand side not working

From the fuse diagram, it's not clear.. Any ideas?

Cheers

Check fuses 21 and 22 in the main fuse box.

Mods can close this topic as its been resolved.

Basically I swapped the other bulbs back in place and re-started the engine.. And hey presto... Everything working again. Must be a defective LED.

Thanks for the reply.

Did you try the LED in both ways round? They have to be installed the correct way unlike conventional bulbs.

Yeah I did that first but I forgot to mention that on here.

All good though, hopefully a new LED on the way soon!

For future reference; use an allen key (or similar), insert it in the small hole to the side of the light and level it so it presses the clip in which will release the fitting, like so:

I actually used your guide haha but I only used it after I had bent the retaining clip with a screwdriver.. I now know for future!

Thanks for uploading the pics
