Puddle lights

Recommended Posts

Hi does anyone have any lobang to change the x260 side mirror puddle lights to LED? The original lights are strangely the only yellow ones on the car..

I am keen to know this too, ever since I got my XF have been wondering if these lights could be LED/White it would be much more better than the current yellow ones.

Let’s await to hear from other forum members who may have a solution to this.

Dear Bros,

Yes. I did it. I've changed mine to LED. I posted in thread in this forum. Its bit tricky to pry open the lamp housing. I actually broke a clip of one side. Lesson learnt, was super extra careful on other side. I changed it again from a 4x LED to a 6x LED (single sided).  Somebody oversea posted a thread how to remove the lamp housing. Found some pics of my DIY..........

I was thinking of doin that logo thing but our XF doesn't have door entry light. Difficult to connect it. I kinda try refrain myself from installing those battery operated type, that sticks to the door. It works the same way but don't think will look nice bcos it protrudes and visible. I've seen some ppl install those. I've been figuring to install the logo projection light to discretely placed at bottom of door. I did this before in my previous car. It was not difficult bcos it has door entry and door ajar warning light. Need to drill a hole into door panel to install the projector and tap the source parallel to the entry lamp. Just to share...........how it was done on my previous ride...........

This is indeed cool stuff. Let me check my XF if it has some provision at the bottom of the door. You are right, I don’t prefer the ones that stick on (battery operated). Drilling a hole might be too early to put my Cat under the Knife !!

Understand that you can do this with XJ but not XF.

You're right bro. XF doesn't have entry light on doors. XJ does. Donno why. Would have been nice to have it. I'm trying to figure way to diy my car.
