Fiat 500l trekking

Has anyone replaced daytime running light bulbs with new led type? Standard bulbs are bland in comparison to new brighter led type.

Re: Fiat 500l trekking

Hi, I've tried several of the led replacements, but so far they all cause the error message! You can of cause install resistors but I can't be bothered with that. I've settled for zeon white replacement filliment bulbs (6.00 a pair, eBay) they have the blue coating but shine white and look good. They are a wedge type bulb 580 quite easy to replace. Either take front wheel off or just turn inward, undo the 2 plastic screws, remove the cover, (pliers handy at this point) gently grip the light plug and rotate anticlockwise I think? Pull out the plug (only gas very short wires) hold plug firmly with one hand and pull bulb out with other. Replace new bulb and reverse fit.....
Thanks davidallan thanked for this post
