Re: Rear footwell courtesy lighting - bulb replacement.

They are small leds aswell as the one inside the center console. They only way I have seen those replaced is by soldering on new leds. Same as the MAP light.

Re: Rear footwell courtesy lighting - bulb replacement.

Good question, but I just assume they are tiny LED's. if that's the case it should be easy to solder in any color you want, even if they are the tiny chip mounted kinds.

Check your local state laws. Some states REQUIRE that you're able to see certain spots behind your trailer.
