I have a 2010 camry hybrid. I would like to upgrade my low beam lights to LED. I was looking at this item:
Has anyone done this before? if so please let me know how it is. Also advice on installation would be appreciated.
Hi guys, just wanted to give out some information on a great deal I managed to find on Camry / Camry Hybrid 2012 to early 2015 model illuminated stainless steel sill plates. The one below I purchased sells for around $90AU on eBay. Managed to find the same one on Aliexpress for $49US ($66AU) shipped. ($2 discount coupon applied)
Its a much better one than most of the models on eBay as it uses OEM retention clips rather than just sticky tape. Solid and good quality stainless steel plates. Also has black surrounds for the finished look. I will update with some high resolution photo's once installed but need help with installation. ^_^
It only has 2 exposed wires for connection to the car and the whole loom is plug and play with the 4 sill plates. (All 4 illuminate) See photo's below. If anyone has any experience fitting this type, I would appreciate some help as to what location is best to tap the open door signal from. I have removed the rear seats and rear carpet to do some MLV sound deadening (road noise) so I have everything ready to go, just need help with where to tap the open door light source from.
Found TOCAU after a google search for how to non-destructively get into the interior lamps in SWMBO's '13 Rolla Hatch (ZRE182). The plan was/is to replace the incandescents with decent LEDs.
I've been doing this sort of stuff for yonks, but most times the careful insertion of ye olde small flat-blade driver pops the cover off and all is good. Not this girl. So I haven't even got to first base (confirming the style/size) so I can get the LEDs under way except for the front personals (which are 27/28mm festoon). Front "room" and rear personals have push-to-switch covers which won't respond nicely to levering. And it looks like the whole trim piece has to be removed for the boot light ...??
Anyone here been-there-done-that on this series?
