Re: Laguna 2002 Headlight bulb replacement and LED install
Ok I think I get it:
If its not a single 12v smd led in place of the sidelight bulb and its not a led bulb with 12 smd's on it then:
You want to put 12 seperate leds like in a strip inside the headlamp unit like Audi daylight running lights?
Sorry no idea on splitting the case,drill a small hole in each side , position the strip carefully with like long bits of clothes hangar wire(peeling the backing paper off could be tricky) ?.Block up the hole(s) with a suitably sized rubber grommet and a bit of mastic?
If it is a strip of led's you want to use you might be able to mount them stuck on the outside of the casing and still have them shining through the glass ,depending on the construction of the headlamp.
I could do that on my car but I have enough leds atm
Something like this with perhaps larger smd's on the strips
Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
