Mk7.5 Registration Plate Lights

18 posts in this topic

Hello,

I've been doing a bit of reading about replacing my number plate lights on my Mk7.5 Fiesta. Has anyone got photo's of their own?

When I had my golf I bought a full LED light cluster from Germany for £40 and to be fair they were cool but super bright. I don't even know if I would go for LED ones on the fiesta, it's just the standard yellow ones make it look so crap at night especially considering they fit it with drl's etc.

Oh and where you got them! B)

Like I say, I might even opt for brighter bulbs rather than ropy eBay led ones that break, I just want rid of the yellow!

Cheers team, Gary.

Got mine off eBay. Were only a couple of quid. Just search for "w5w smd led".

The lights are really easy to get out. Just slide an allen key or small screw driver into the hole on the right of the light and push the clip gently towards the light and it should pop out enough for you to pull it down. Unscrew the bulb holder and pop the new one In.

Finally got round to putting them in, it's not dark yet but they don't look like they will be over the top and attract attention.

I love the no canbus on ford's :D

I just bought 2 led bulbs and put them into the original holders. Not really sure what the benefit is of the ones you got especially since there £25 more!

how much did the led bulbs you got cost? i think i might give the ones you got a shot because there look nice and not too bright where as you can see from the image i posted a while ago the ones i previously bough were insanely bright and also got abit fed up of being blinded when opening the boot when it was dark lol
