Question Interior Dome Light

Hey whats up Fanatics I need some help. I had a question about the 3rd gen Focus interior lighting. I have a 2012 Explorer and all of us Ex owners are trying to replace our interior lights with white LED's (they currently have Yellow LEDs). someone hinted out that the new focus has the same LED but in white.

i was wondering if anyone here could help me verify this?

Also I was wondering if anyone had taken apart the dome light (not map light) and taken pictures, i would really appreciate to see these.

this is what the explorer lights look like.

2nd row

3rd row









thanks so much, and if there is already a thread about these lights im sorry if i over looked it, but please lead me in the right direction!

Update

Hello,

I was wondering if you were ever able to upgrade the interior lights to LED? I was able to get the assemblies out but have no idea how to get the bulbs out.

I love the bright interior white dome lights in my 2012 focus SE. I would like to have similar dome/map lights in my 2011 Mustang GT. Will that be possible? Any sugestions?

once the assembly is out make sure the bulb is cool enough to wiggle it firmly side to side and then it will come out.
i took mine out for a minute and put it back bc i didnt have an LED replacement yet. it appears to be a T10 bulb.
