Default Sidelight bulb

I noticed I have a sidelight bulb out.

Two questions...

Are they as easy as a normal old car

And..

Anyone fitted LED replacements without problems with the cars electrics?

Dead easy to change.

I have led sides in mine and they do throw an error up but cant say it bothers me. You can get led sides that dont throw up the error though for not much more.

i got side leds with resistor so they dont throw error, they call them "can-bus compatible", search ebay, i got a pair from uk for 15usd, shipped. and good quality ones too.

as for changing, the biggest problem is fitting your hand behind the headlight to take out the base of bulb, i used a pair of pliers to get to it as my kebab fingers were useless.

I got 4 pairs of these cheapo ones: eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices

But in the end i just wasnt happy with them, they are more blue than white. So im gonna resell them locally, but for the ones i used as sidebulbs i wanted them nice and bright and white, so i was willing to spend a bit more.

2 x ERROR FREE CANBUS W5W T10 501 LED SIDE LIGHT BULB 13 SMD | eBay

These are the ones i got. Also keep in mind even though they can be found cheaper, i found that many sellers wont ship to serbia, so these ones turned out to be cheapest ones that i can find.
