Hi all

 

Looks like I have 1 numberplate light out. Is it worth changing them to LEDs? Are they easy to replace and are they just an easy replacement halogen to LED?

 

Thanks

Depends on the quality of the LEDs, fitted some to the dash on my old car and

they were failing within weeks.

 

Took them out and put standard bulbs back in.

 

 

The resistors they fit to make them canbus compatible can get super hot,

well over 100ºC.

Any recommendations for LED lights?
My last ones were from eBay and have lasted 9 years but seller no longer active.

I know a fellow member by the name of 4titx made them but not sure if he is still active on here and unable to send him a message.

From £6.29 on ebay for what appear to be the same units.  OK you will need to wait 14 days

but you know the source.

Chance eBay ones if you like. These lights came a day early. And are very good. Bright but not too bright.

The glare is due to iPhone camera. You can clearly ready the number plate with the naked eye.

Very good lights. I can only recommend them.

Number plate lights don't trigger a bulb failure warning so shouldn't need any resistors for can bus compliance.
