Photobucket have decided to charge me $60 per year to allow 3rd party hosting.

I decided to add thumbnails of my pictures to the bottom of each post on the NEW308 thread.

Al.


I have started changing my bulbs to LED in my New308 Allure - 2015.

These are my suggestions. You may find some of these links have been replaced but that should be obvious and an updated link should be available:

Boot area:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2X-W5W-T10...-/161885651143

Rear Number Plate:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2X-W5W-T10...504&rmvSB=true

This alternative complete housing is also available: 2X LED License Plate Light White For Peugeot Citron 106 207 307 308 406 407 | eBay NB: Plugs may not fit latest model 308. Check your model and year prior to ordering.


Footwells:

9 SMD LED CANBUS ERROR FREE HID WHITE CAR SIDE LIGHT BULBS T10 501 W5W 194 | eBay

..or if they are to bright when dimmed at night go for the 5-SMD version:

T10 CAR BULBS LED ERROR FREE CANBUS 5 SMD XENON WHITE W5W 501 SIDE LIGHT BULB | eBay

NB: If you fancy a change of colour these are also available in Blue, Red, Green, Amber. I've tested the 9X in Blue and it's perfect so I suggest you use the 9X if you go for the coloured version.

I had these 9X Blue in my 2008 as they looked good against the blue dial surrounds.

I've left the 9X Blue fitted as they look rather nice. I'll test the 5X Pure White later when they arrive.

UPDATE: 5X Pure White are excellent for the footwells. Good illumination when the door is opened and dim down nicely when driving with the lights on.

Glove Box: See new section: https://www.peugeotforums.com/forums/...new308-200010/


Rear Turn Indicators:

25W (or 30W) XP-E

2x 25W 7507/581/BAU15S/PY21W CREE LED CANBUS BULBS AMBER INDICATOR LIGHTS BMW | eBay


OR: 50W XP-G

Error Free Amber 50W 7507 PY21W LED CREE Bulb BMW Front Turn Signal Peugeot 308 | eBay


Front Turn Indicators:

I've tested one of the rear 25W XP-E LEDs in the front and it worked fine without any warning for 'bulb out' or hyper flashing. I do feel though that a slightly more powerful LED is required in this style of LED; maybe 50W for a stronger amber light as the LED is upright and is 55mm long and fits OK. Please note that I tested these 25W as emergency flashers with ignition off. I also tested them as emergency flashers and as turn signals with aux power on. I have also now tested them in full operation mode with the engine running and they're excellent.

However; these LEDs are primarily designed for horizontal fitting hence the domed lens tip but the illumination is good and they have a more sharper and positive on/off action than the standard bulb. I still think the 50W is a better choice though.

UPDATE:...definitely go for the 50W CREE in amber. 25W or 30W in the vertical position is just not bright enough in the sunshine.

Error Free Amber 50W 7507 PY21W LED CREE Bulb BMW Front Turn Signal Peugeot 308 | eBay

NB: Halogen headlamp models are forward facing so they will take advantage of the domed lens. GT models already have front LED (sequential) indicators

Reversing lights:

2 X ULTRA BRIGHT ERROR FREE CANBUS T15 W16W 921 LED SIDELIGHT REVERSE LIGHT | eBay

No interference with reversing camera and much better illumination. Make sure you get the 11W version!!

UPDATE: I've just noticed these 15W but I have not tested them. They may be better if you live in an unlit area:

2x T15 W16W 921 15W 15SMD Xenon White Samsung LED Backup Reverse Light Lamp Bulb | eBay

Front fog lights In new section along with updates. See here: https://www.peugeotforums.com/forums/...new308-200010/

Rear fog lights In new section along with updates. See here: https://www.peugeotforums.com/forums/...new308-200010/


NB: Similar makes are available but I've only shown the ones I have fitted and tested. All work well and give significant improvement with no 'bulb out' warnings appearing.

Concerning the W5W/T10/501 go for the flat blade contacts like I've suggested, not the 'bent wire' type.

Concerning the W16W/T15/921 go for the flat blade contacts like I've suggested, not the 'bent wire' type.

PS: My version is an Allure. Please check your model to ensure you order the correct LED.

I am only making a suggestion as to the type. Other makes and versions are available so if you find a good one then please share the details with us all.

Hi Al, I just bought a 2016 plate 308 Allure (with footwell lights) they are "OK" in the standard white but I would like to change them to Blue (and possibly install ones that are a bit brighter) Is it just a simple case of prising Off the plastic cover, pulling the old white bulbs out and pushing Blue T10s in?

Thanks Steve

This thread is my original one that I no longer update as all the information and updates are now here: https://www.peugeotforums.com/forums...new308-200010/

I show the Blue LEDs in the footwell of my previous 2008 in post #7

Carefully prise from one end and the whole unit will come out. You can then hinge the lens open or remove it altogether so that you can replace the bulb.

Make sure you get dimmable LEDs if your car has that feature.

Good luck with the changes.

Al.

A,l thank you so much for the quick reply, That's brilliant thank you. I'm pretty sure the Blue T10s I saw advertised were dimmable. I'll Give it a go for sure and I'll be sure to check out your videos too. Your input on Peugeot Forums is invaluable.

Once again thank you

Hi again Al, Searched long and hard for dimmable Blue led's but can't find any that actually state that they are dimmable.. I'm probably looking for the 5-SMD as I don't want them too bright .... I did check out this link you posted https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UK-x2-SIL...53.m2749.l2649 but they say they arent Canbus error free. I'm looking to have the dome bulb the same Blue as the footwells.. any thoughts? Cheers

They shouldn't need to be CanBus compatible in the footwell location as I doubt it is monitored.

Do a search on Amazon for T10 LED Blue and you'll get a few come up.

The Safego version looks like one I would try.

The rear number plate is also where you probably will not need CanBus compatible either. That's a good area to use 'non-canbus' as they generate less heat in that small enclosure. I have some good LEDs fitted in my wife's 108 in the Boot/Front Courtesy/Number Plate which are 'non-canbus' white and a very bright red in the high/third brake light.

You can see that thread here: https://www.peugeotforums.com/forums...d-leds-330468/

The original type I tested were ok but had a very slight 'blue-ish' tinge to them which is noticeable in the photos. I found and alternative which was much better; I mention that further on and give the links.

Unfortunately I have no way of testing whether they dim though.

Once again Al thank you, I'm sure you must get peppered with questions from newbies like me about things, you must be fed up with it by now but I really do appreciate your time and knowledge.

The number plate lights and boot light are monitored, but no warning is ever displayed unless you do a global check with diagbox. Then it tells you of problems with both those if you have fitted non canbus LEDs.
In other words, don't worry about it.
