Has anyone changed their license tag bulbs with LED bulbs?
I was also pretty shocked to learn that Hyundai opted for filament-based bulbs for both the license plate lights AND the reverse lights. This is especially stupid/strange when every other light on the car is LED-based. Yet another brain-dead Hyundai design decision.Josh- Holy God, I was following my wife home last night with our new Palisade and thought the same thing.... How we not gonna have better vanity plate lights??? Gonna stop by Oreillys this AM and see about replacing them, it was super easy on my Outback, $20 for Sylviania if I remember right?
Could you post the URL for the on-line shop manual please?I got my info from the online service manual that the shop uses, so I would tend to agree - still, it's a starting point to figure out how to do stuff. I've only had my Palisade for a week at this point, so I'm using the service info as a starting point to try and figure out how to fix the stuff Hyundai decided to leave out. After watching that video, however, I can see why it would be a pain in the butt to do without removing the bumper cover. Even the guy who made the video decided not to re-use the wire hangers once he did the modification. I might make the effort to change these if I knew I could find truly decent LED replacement lamps that worked for more than 2 weeks before crapping out...
Did you change yours or are you planning to?
