HI All

 

Has anyone replaced their sidelight bulbs for LED, if so, have there been any problems?

Very best wishes

Hi Clive

I have, Don't go for the cheapy 10 for a quid ones off bay of E, They start to flicker in no time, Secondly they are polarity sensitive so check they are working before plugging them back in and refitting the back covers, Lastly they can be a bit of a swine to get access to in the ns if you have hands like shovels like me!!!!!!!

Good advice from Mark.

 

I thought about getting my bulbs changed all round but a bit too expensive and appeared to be far too tricky.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

I replaced the sidelights on the xk I had just bought ultra bright led ones off ebay cant remember how much they cost , but looked great thou. but a bugger to get into , had to take the full headlight units out and but them back without scratching the car. very little room ect but word off warning. the blue tinge ones are a MOT fail.
