Recently swapped out all my bulbs with LEDs. This video shows you how to access them: https://youtu.be/5eWfCKczlxQ

Oh hey thanks sweet. I was thinking about getting LEDs and changing them what a coincidence! Where did you get your LEDs? Did you get it as a kit or individual buys? Did you change all of them like in the video?

I feel a little embarrassed because I did pop the light cover and looked at the bulb, but when I tried to remove it I was undoing the whole casing instead of turning the bulb. So it looked to me like I had to remove the map light case and pull it out the back. Instead I just needed to turn the bulb itself lol.

How much did the leds cost you? Is there a big difference for the reverse lights?

Nice video. I’ve never heard of that company. I googled them and found this package. $40

Yes, I'm fairly sure I replaced everyone as shown in the video. With the right YouTube video, its a quick and easy job!

Tip 1: Don't buy a custom pack; buy a bulk pack of each type of bulb. It's cheaper and you are left with spares in case you ever need them.
Tip 2: Go for pure/cool white for exterior 194 bulb replacements, and whatever color you like for inside. I used warm white colors in my interior.

For info, here's the product links of what I bought and fitted:
Festoon bulb (for the second row dome light): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0185MHF8E/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
194 bulb: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0182FMWKU/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1
