    I think this would be good as a sticky for others so they dont need to keep posting light sizes.


    If i miss any do tell :)


    Exterior:

    Front:


    Dipped Headlights : H7
    Full Headlights : H1
    Indicators : 382
    Sidelights : 501 Wedges
    Fogs : H3

    Rear:

    Indicators : 382
    Reverse : 382
    Stop/tail: 380 Dual filliment.
    Fogs : 382
    Numberplate : Festoon 39mm.


    Interior

    Glove Box : Festoon 36/39mm
    Boot : Festoon 39mm
    Central Light: 2x 501 wedges and Festoon 42mm
    Door Lights: Festoon: 36/39mm
    Roof Linning Lights: T5




    Some may disagree with sizes on bulbs by a mm or two but the sizes are based on this fabulous seller bellow

    LEDs Festoons etc

    The boot light on my LCR in no way would accept a 36mm festoon, I know as I ordered one by accident :( 39/40mm will however.

    1-2mm off will not be a problem.

    Its a matter of just pushing harder or opening the terminals.

    The Glovebox is the only case where you canĀ“t place a larger Festoon.

    I got the rear roof light bulbs out today but they dont have anything on them to say what they are? Has anyone changed these for LED's? It would be a real shame if thes bulbs cant be changed. They seem to be wired in to a plastic holder which clips in to the light housing.

    I'll dig out the ebay link so i can tell you - they're not 'designed' to fit .... but anything that has wires that can be bent can be made to fit :)

    good idea for a sticky

    i wouldnt worry about a few mm out as you can just bend the terminals.

    Do you think you could modify a wedge bulb to fit in the rear roof lights? :think:

    I fitted my rear roof light bulbs today but was expecting them to be a bit brighter? Its a bit of a shame coz i think the interior front LEDs look really good :clap:

    I'm pretty sure with a bit of tinkering you could make something brighter fit.

    Question for UncleFester;

    How did you get the rear light cluster to come off? I've just been out there to have a look at bulb sizes and I got nowhere. Is it just a case of getting a srewdriver behind the unit and using some gentle persuassion? (Not sure if I've just killed the central locking by pocking and prodding. It worked fine when I opened the car, but not when I came to lock up.)

    Any clues you can give me would be appreciated.

    Thanks
    Mark

    anyone have any problems when replacing the two 5w5 bulbs in the light above the rear view mirror with led ones. the festoon bulb in the middle works but the two 5w5 bulbs glow dimmly and flicker.
