Want to replace Dome Light bulb with LED in 2015 SL

Mon Dec 08, 2014 4:13 am

Would like to replace the incandescent dome light bulb in my 2015 model with an LED one, has anyone gone to the trouble to do this? If so, do you have bulb part number(s)?

I have bought successfully from Oznium.com in the past, good customer service.

Thanks!

If I remember correctly, I used one of these kits from eBay:

Not this exact piece or vendor, but similar. It is VERY bright and white, and have often gotten comments about how nice it works at night.

I replaced the hopelessly dim festoon light in the hatch area with a small LED array and the results were fabulous. I didn't bother with the dome light though as I think it's bright enough. But LEDs are definitely the way to go if you want to punch up the intensity.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

Does anyone know how to get to the map lights for replacement in a 2013? It looks like you have to remove the entire plastic sunglasses/light housing but there are no screws. Thank you.

If it's the same as the 2012, you just need a tool to help you pull straight down on the plastic light coverings. They just snap into place. I think I used an old dentist pick to do so. A paint can opener would probably also work.

Just got replacement blue led lights and was wondering that too for the Map lights in my 2013.

I'll have to take some pics or video to enlighten others :)

I replaced everything but the map lights (including the rear license plate light) with blue LEDs (I have the old baby blue color exterior) and it's very cool. The map lights are difficult to replace and seem plenty bright (and don't get used much).
