    Default Led Conversion - Light in Mirror???

    I have done a SMD LED conversion in red on my car. Almost finished now, just want to change the small light in the bottom of the rear view mirror (indirect night lighting?) Is it possible and what LED do I need???

    Thanks

    You need to dismantle the surround of the mirror, then disconnect the ribbon wire, take the mirror off then prise it apart then you will see the led then just unsolder the old one then solder new one back in but the correct way round! Then just the reverse to put it all back together!
