I need guidance....does anyone know how to access the park light bulbs in EF's as im either replacing or tinting with a light blue globe.

Also is it possible to run LED lights off the power source that the park lights recieve, obviously with an appropriate reseistor.??

easiest thing to do is go to a rice shop and buy some T-10mm LED park light globes and replace with them. i recomend white so it's legal. Or if you can be bothered putting effort in for little financial savings (10$ at most) get the LEDs from a shop and the resisotirs and solder them in place.

thanks guys, just so you know im not replacing the bulb with an LED, i just want to change the original bulb to one wich is a little bit blue.

but also want to run an LED from that power to the two side holes in the front of the bumper, i allready have the leds, from solar lights hahaha but there bright! if i can run them off that park light power then are resistors or anything that lowers the voltage required??

thanks again

Ignorance, or lack of knowledge, is no excuse to the law. But if you really thought about it, I'm sure you would have figured that they were...
Anyways, stick with white ones and you'll be fine,m and they look sweet as as it's a pure clean white light they emit, not yeloowy!.
