Just picked up my new 2018 ST Line X and those Puddle lights Shocked (photo below) need to be swapped over to a better white LED unit, they are just too yellow to me and noticeable against the frozen white paintwork.


So a quick look in the "maintenance" section of the owners manual and these "Approach Lights" (Page 238) can be got at with a screw driver if you turn the mirror glass in. I just hope this is better than the hassle with the old Mk1 puddle lights for changing a bulb. And the manual doesn't list what type of bulb it is Clap Is it a WY5W like the Side Repeater ? difficult to tell from the manual diagrams, so has anyone changed the Puddle Lamps yet ?

Yes, they're T10 (assuming nothing has changed) and you can get to them via moving the mirror for access. From memory they've got a moulded rubber bulb holder that is pushed into the light assembly within the mirror housing.

I think there are other posts on here discussing what LED types people have tried.

Hi, there's quite a long topic thread (about 15 pages of info) if you put this into the search facility - 

ALL Mk2 LED, Halogen, Xenon bulbs info

most of them are really easy to do, with great results. For the new owners of ST-Line X (with the Style Pack), what do the rear LED lights look like at night? Quite a deal breaker for me when the time comes to replace my present Kuga.
Cheers,
Trev.

Hi I would be interested on how you get on with replacing the bulbs for LED’s. I’m due to pick up my first Kuga in March and will probably like to change those yellow lamps with cool white LED’s to.
