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.

i agree make it a sticky :) took me ages the other day to find out what the part number was for a replacement brake light bulb.. probably me being a n00b but still handy to have as a sticky!:)

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 can´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 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:

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.
