Re: LED Liftgate Reverse and Tail Light Install w/pics

whatevrworks;
I see you changed the license plate bulbs as well? Are those bulbs 168 type? I’m changing the reverse lights shortly as well.

Thanks,

Should be 194 type / w5w but basically the same as 168.

Search for "led license plate install" there is a thread I posted on this. Not all LEDs will fit the license plate because of the angle the lights are sitting at. So if your replacements are any taller than the oem bulbs you will have issues.

Re: LED Liftgate Reverse and Tail Light Install w/pics

To complete this do you need 2 sets of each the white and red LED's? 4 of each color? Is that correct or no?

Re: LED Liftgate Reverse and Tail Light Install w/pics

You sure gambled with thos 1 star LEDs from Amazon, luckily your end result looks 5 star. I hope they last.

How about 3rd brake light? Any plans to swap that one?

Re: LED Liftgate Reverse and Tail Light Install w/pics

i just realized you're in the Northern VA area! Nice, i'll hafta look out for the WK2 with LEDs swapped out in the rear and give you a wave.

Thanks for posting. I'm debating if i want to do the reverse lights or not. I have replaced the interior bulbs and license plate. Want to do the DRLs next.

BTW for instructions on removing the tailgate trim panel see the rear view camera .pdf. Steps 1-5 on page 2.
