I was doing the same job this morning, fitting yellow halogen fog bulbs (they were easy) and failing to fit LED DRLs - not the Big Jimny ones, but some rather expensive branded ones.  The DRL LEDs just wouldn't go in, despite silicone grease on the O-rings, and I had to refit the Philips OEM bulbs.  I think these lamp.units have very tight tolerances.

Thanks Roger, I will bear that in mind when I come to fit them and leave plenty of time. The reason for buying both LEDs together was that I only want to strip everything down once.

The stripping down only takes a minute or so - the lying on your back checking all three lugs of a P13W bulb are properly engaged is more time-consuming!  Unlike the fogs, it's not obvious which way up they go and, given almost everything involved is plastic, I'd recommend getting down there so you can see the back of the unit.  It's a horrible bulb fitment that I've never had to deal with previously.

I finally got around to getting an arm rest - took a while to find one with a cup holder. This is going to make my long trips to the Scottish Highlands much more comfortable! 


I'm an adventure filmmaker & photographer exploring in my Gen 3 Jimny.

A pair of strong bags made of a carpet like material to keep everything in one place in the back of my Jimny.

 

One is going to be used for my recovery kit, that way I can lift it in when needed.

 

A bit of a bargain at about £6.50 each from a well known auction site.
