QX70 09+ Changing the Mood Lighting in the Door Handles to LED

    We all know we have mood lighting in the interior door handles in all four doors. Anytime the car is on the emits a soft yellow amber color which I'm not really a fan of. I want them to match the mood lighting in the floor well and the mood lighting that shines down over the console from the sunglass holder.

    I took the door handle off today to have a look at it and this is what it looks like:

    The door handle light is already LED actually, but it's not a white LED. And you can't just swap out the bulb and put a new one in. The actual bulb is attached to the wire it's connected to. So if I'm wanting to change this I will need to do some cutting and soldering of the new bulb to go on. This is not great since I really don't want to do any cutting into any wiring.

    VLED's doesn't sell it. If I'm going to do this it has to be custom.

    Ok guys after hours of searching I finally found a place online that sells the replacements! You will have to cut the bulb off but its a 1 minute thing and it looks OEM.

    I'm not giving the link out yet as I want to be sure first when I receive them and not look like a fool lol. :bad:

    Yup, keep us posted! That's one thing that stood out when I first drove my FX at night...the yellowish door handle lights don't seem to match any of the other interior mood lighting

    I'm not sure I'll check it out for you. If I confirm these work fine though I'll post the link up. These are close to 95% of looking OEM with no soldering involved.
