Not sure what you mean by "inside lens" there is a standalone reflector that is just for the DRL. Not sure on the some models I have a limited with the bi-xenon lamps. The laredo x may have different setup. The lens cover I was talking about that would not fit was on the license plate lights.

And yeah the DRL goes off when turn signal is on for that side.

Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

Looks awesome! Nice job! Have you considered dual stage leds for the turn signals?

Yeah eventually I want to have everything led, and swap the fog lights for HID as well, it will be a work in progress for awhile though, and definitely not going to be the guinea pig for the HID fogs because I am afraid of melting the housing from any heat they may generate. Next project though is finding something that will fit the license plate lights and the rear brake lights. (other than the center which is already led).

Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

HID's wont melt the housing before a regular halogen will....FYI. They run cooler from my understanding

Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

Those look great and thanks for the tutorial with pics. I will be doing it.

I changed my rear license plate lights to LED the first week. I can't remember the bulb model. I took the original into an auto store and they just matched what I needed. I had no problem with the covers. They cost Cdn$12 for the pair. The same bulbs worked on my daughter's Mazda 3 Sport.

Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

Silly question but is that not the slot for the high beams?

The low beams are the factory HID's and in the manual it says 9005 hi beams, what am I missing?

Re: LED DRL Replacement Install w/pics

On the of the passenger side light you have (left to right) the xenon hi/low beam light (in one), then the DRL, then the turn signal marker light

Maybe I should have said "inboard" lens. Obviously the outboard lens (really a projector lens) is for the headlights. I thought the other lens (inboard) was for the hi-beams.

So if you don't have DRL, that lens isn't used at all? Weird...
