Help in Upgrading reversing light please

Post by Gra on Sun Mar 05, 2017 4:09 pm

I've just fitted a replacement reversing light supplied by our very own, Woodie. It works fine but I would like to replace the standard 382 21w bulb with a nice bright white led one. There are loads listed on ebay, so many that I can't see thee wood for the trees. Has anyone fitted an led replacement that they can recommend please. I'd like something that is a lot brighter than the standard 21w bulb.

I've tried 2 now, but they aren't any brighter. Condition of reflector can make a big difference. Am thinking of fitting an old spot on n/s to brighten things up.

I have got a 21w Halogen bulb which has a built-in beeper as well. I had it in my Pick up and have had it 3 years in my MPV and still going strong.

Google it and several companies come up with a result.

Thanks, Woodie, I'll take a look.

Just had my reversing light unit out while fitting revering sensors on my Porter MPV. I had a hell of a job getting the standard bulb back in the socket so a LED bulb may prove just too large or the wrong shape to fit in the unit. Mine is very bright - better than my car. New reversing lamps are available from Italy for less than 10 Euros + postage.
