VE Calais V S1 International 6.0
I've searched and found plenty on the wing mirror ones, but not much on the door ones. I have a calais v s1. Does anyone know if you can get to the door puddle lamps without pulling the trim off? Also does anyone know where I can get a replacement plastic cover thingy. Previous owner smashed the one on the rear door, no idea how.
Thanks

The door Puddle Lights clip into the bottom of the door trim,
The terminals are usually on the back end [door latch end] of the light,
Which means you can pry them out at the front end [door hinge end] of the fitting.
Unless the previous owner has put them in back to front.
I think they are the 35/36mm, 12 Volt, 5 watt festoon filament bulbs.

Dont think of putting LED's in them,
because you will be replacing them in 3 months time,
because they will stop working, some of the single LED's will fail, and some of the LED's will flash.
Right pain in the _____ LED Lights/Globes.

Awesome thank you! No led's just need new globe in one, and replace the damaged globe/cover on my rear door.
I'm trying to keep this car stock

We replaced ours with LEDs. Much brighter and nicer looking.
