Default LED lighting inside

The LED's showed up for the map, dome, and cargo area. Much brighter I think.

See these little tabs on the lens?



Be sure you're pushing on these, not the whole assembly for the light.

Lit up, no lens:



The LED's are a hair bigger than the stock bulbs so, you'll have to spring the clips back little when you install them. That seemed the case for all 4 lights.



Here are the tabs on the map light lens.



All in all, a good upgrade. The light was making a shadow with the shift lever in the day time so I think they're brighter.

Did you get one for the cargo area? Way too dark back there!

[nevermind I actually read the post instead of just looking at the pics] Where did you get them? What's the part number?

Heh ... I wish I'd seen this post a couple of days ago, before I spent time trying to pry the entire dome light off instead of just the lens.

Anyhow, I installed the Autogoody set that's on eBay, and I agree that they're an improvement. All of the lights are brighter, though I wish the cargo light were even brighter still. The map lights, OTOH, are almost a little too bright now ...

I put these in my Jeep and they were almost like a spot light, just shining down in a beam. Have you found that to be the case?

The light is definitely a little more focused than from an incandescent bulb, just because of the way LEDs are constructed. But I think the lenses on the Crosstrek fixtures diffuse the light pretty evenly and well.

Yep, that's the set I got. True, the cargo light could be brighter. Maybe another one on the right side will show up in a future version of the XV.

Be sure to pay attention to the number of LEDs on each bulb..the cargo light go as bright (I use 15 led ones) and for my reverse lights same 15..but 15 on the map lights are brutal 9s give you a way crisper and easier to handle white light

They are really cheap on amazon for a set of 10 and since most of the bulbs are the same around the vehicle you can put them to good use !

Do the LED lights fade also?

(This is my first post!)
