Lack of knowledge, that's how. I went to Amazon.com looked up "AGT LEB Bulbs" and purchased from seller "Speedshop" which seems to be the only one that sells genuine AGT bulbs. The price is for a pack of 2 plus shipping. When I ordered 6 packs the shipping for each bag was added too.... came to $24 and change.how did you get 12 for $25 O_O
they sell 10 for $9 and another ... $6 for shipping?
The above post was so helpful, but I have read a few people including myself have broken the License Lamp Assy.Here are some pictures.
If anyone is thinking about this mod do it, it is easy. Took me less than 14 minutes start to finish, including taking pictures.
License plate lights - start by removing the trunk lid liner.
Then remove wire harness and release light unit and remove from car.
Once out, remove foam gasket and use small screwdriver to pry out the clear lense.
Just pull out old bulb and replace with LED, remember to test light before reassembly. LED's will only work 1 way
To change the reading lights in the front and rear.
Pry out lens from the outer edge with a small screwdriver
Lens will swivel on 2 plastic hinges.
Just pull out bulbs and replace.
The rears are the same concept except that the lenses are held on with 4 hook type clips on each corner, just use a small screwdriver on the front and rear edges to pry out the lens.
Use small screwdriver on top of lens and to the outer edge to pry unit out of the door.
Again, a plastic clip holds the wire harness in, just depress the center to release.
The door lights have a clear plastic shield over the bulbs, to release the shield use a small screwdriver to push a large clip inwards and upwards, then pull on the shield to release.
I also changed out the trunk light, the cover just pulls of with a little force.
I will be doing the vanity lights on Sunday, I'll post some pics of this later.
Also, here is a pic of the reversing camera with the LED's fitted.
hey, i was wondering when u stick the HEX screw driver in the hole, do you press in or turn side ways to let the cover pop out?my phone camera sucks, it doesn't do the LED interior lights justice whatsoever.
installing it was tough, it was my first time ever. i purchased AGT LED bulbs from SpeedShop on Amazon, shipping was super fast because I'm located a couple of cities away. sadly, there was a bulb where the contact ( + & - ) was twisted together -.-'' . that blew out my fuse 4 x . luckily my co-worker had spare 7.5A fuses >.> . i didn't even find out the contacts were twisted until i tested the LED bulb with a computer power supply, when i pushed the switch to turn it on, it sparked and blew out, i removed the cap and witnessed the two contacts being twisted together.
removing the map light was difficult in the beginning, especially because on the left map light, i pushed the black cap that the bulb was connected into off the green board it was secured upon, and it was a pain in the ass trying to get the black cap back onto the green board.
i'm not sure if your finger can fit but , you can use double sided tape, put it on each end of your chosen fingers to pull out the bulb, or use thin pliers and double sided tape to firmly grip the bulb, and pull down. i found it greatly easy for me.
other than that, everything went well. i have another camry se 2012 in the household, and when i changed those lights, it took me like 5 minutes because i had all the tools necessary and the experience. i also barely realized the SE wasn't the same thing as mine because I have a sunroof and this SE does not, now i have to purchase a festoon LED =P . thank you for posting a direct link to a festoon LED bulb on amazon !
for the the license plate lights, you can use a HEX screw driver, the smallest size? there are two hex holes on each end of the cover plate on the license plate, i used the right side hex hole on both cover license plate lights, and i was able to pop out the cover light easily, pull out the bulb and replace it without any level of stress. tested the LED before i put back the cover, and popped the covers back in.
anyone with a camry SE without sunroof , buy a festoon LED bulb not from ASIA yet?
this http://www.amazon.com/31mm-Festoon-White-DE3022-DE3175/dp/B004ZVXFZ2/ was suggested, how does that fit in your dome light?
if your black cap or bulb popped into your map light, maybe i can help you . let me know.
if you need pictures on how to pop out the license plate light covers, i can possibly take some photos showing how to pop it out.
