Ford Focus interior dome light HELP

So I have the 2012 Ford Focus SE Hatch model with a moonroof and because I have a moonroof my interior lights only have a flat circuit board meaning I cannot replace the LED's inside (they are white but I want to replace them with blue one) so I was wondering if anyone knew if it were possible to replace my entire dome lights with the ones where you can replace the bulb if you have a link to where i can buy them that would be great I know how to install already just looking for any info on where to buy these and if it is possible to plug-n-play them


In the video he has the dome lights where the bulb is easily replaceable while mine look like this

Is it possible you already have LEDs? I always thought mine were LEDs, but I could be wrong. I have a '12 TI.

As stated I have LEDS but I want them to be white I'm just looking to know if I can change the entire fixture with the ones that allow me to change the bulb

You are stuck with the LED white domes. My 2012 SEL came with the halogen bulbs, which means that I am able to change them to any color LED bulb I want. I actually bought a pair of the OEM LED domes like you have (flat circuit) because I wanted factory LED domes. Turns out the plug on the halogen vs the plug on the LED domes are different and have several different pins. So you cannot change them either way. I think the only way you could is you would have to remove the entire headliner and change all the wiring to the plugs and that just seems like excessive work and costly.

By the way, I still have the set of OEM LED domes if anyone needs them, I can sell at a very good price since I just want to get rid of them. You can only use these if your car came with LED domes from the factory and if yours somehow failed, PM me, as I do not need these
