Hey does anyone know the bulb size for the license plate? I'm looking forward to swap with led bulb. And also does anyone know any information about the third brake light flasher? My hyundai dealership doesnt install those

Also, anyone know which LEDs to get for interior lighting? And possibly new high beams cause I can't stand that my headlights are LED and the high beams are halogen

It's in the manual. Look at lights or bulbs in appendix.

The manual would be more helpful if they listed industry standard bulb sizes for all of them instead of W5W and W16W which only mean 5W and 16W wedge. They don't list the base width so no idea if they're T5 T10 etc.. Guess I have to pull them out to find out what they are.

It's been a while but pretty sure I went with 921 bulbs for license plate, backup and interior map. DE3175 for overhead and hatch, 1156 rear blinker, 1157 front blinker (resistor style) and 9005 high beam.

Though I will say I thought the led's in the map lights were too bright/harsh and the high beams didn't give me any more distance they just color matched the lows. (Then again I went with a slim profile 9005 just to be sure i could still use the threaded plug on the rear of the headlight housing, a higher performance led 9005 may offer better distance lighting)

Yeah that's the rough thing with the retrofit headlamps. It seems like they're never ideal. They either have some fitment issue or they fit but don't work well.



I pulled the bulbs for the reverse and plate lamps and the reverse are 921 T15 for sure but the plate lamps are the smaller 168 T10 size. They use the same base size but the 921 should have a bigger head with more LEDs because it's supposed to be 3x brighter than the 168.

Yep you're right, the map lights also look to be the smaller 168. Another thing I noticed is that the brighter backup and plate bulbs seemed to oversaturate the camera's light range. Going with a lower wattage/lumens led resulted in a clearer picture for me.

Just make sure you don't contact any of the metal surrounding the lights. It will immediately short the fuse. Best thing to do is turn off the fuse switch in the interior or disconnect the battery before removing or installing.
