    Hey Guys

    Just wondering how you change the front interior lights for a VE SS Series 2 vehicle. It says to take them to a Holden Dealer however i want to put blue LEDs in there and im sure the dealer wouldnt want to do it. Im sure its not that hard but sure there is a technique to do it. Tried looking everywhere but cant find anything

    Thanks

    I'm assuming it's still the same interior light as the ve1.

    What I do is just get my fingers in the side then work them to the front and pull down.

    The whole light assembly will come out.

    pull down on the front of the light ( your talking about the centre light right? not the front driver n passenger one ?) the front swings down and the back of it is hinged. You can unplug it and take the whole unit out if you want. The procedure was in the owners manual last time i looked. Where did you get the blue lights from ?

    Yeah thats right. Although it wasn't too easy. The one for the rear seats was easier but probably because its just the light and no sunglasses holder. Same thing though with the hinges.

    As said pull the whole assembly down at the front, closest to the windscreen, it will unclip.

    On the Bl LED sight, which are the globes that fit in our VE's?...... I have been looking for globes (green LEDs) to replace the stock ones to match the green neons in my footwells

    I just ordered T10 (I assume that's the globe type/size) in ultraviolet led which makes every white bit glow. But not bright enough which doesn't bother me.
