LEDs on VI rear spoiler brake light

Afternoon all,

Has anyone attempted to replace individual LEDs on the rear spoiler light?

As you can see I have around 17 out

Thanks.

It'll be difficult to get the right intensity as LED tech has moved on a lot.

If you don't mind bright spots, then they are not too bad to replace, just make sure you have a fine-tipped soldering iron and a solder sucker.

Just split the unit.

56 leds in total, 14 130ohm resistors and 1 diode in there.

7.4mm but I didn't see that size and voltage after only a quick look online.

As you say jhfozzy tech has moved on so I'm thinking of changing all of them.

Either that or if I can find an led strip that fits...

We'll see...Free time isn't a luxury I have much of.
