Title: LED Tail light cluster
Post by: Paulrussell on February 14, 2016, 07:48:21 PM
Hi,
Does any one know if it is possible to change the led's in the rear light cluster on a 2010 titanium? I seem to have one dim led and it's really affecting my Ocd!

I've taken the cluster out of the tailgate but it looks like the led board is sealed into the main unit, and the price for a whole cluster is ridiculous! Thanks for any help.

Paul

I'm nearly certain Ford won't sell you any replacement LED's for the cluster, it'll be one complete unit. Whether you can sufficiently dismantle the unit to access the LED's and potentially substitute one (assuming you can get a replacement up to the job) is another matter, but I'd be surprised as the unit certainly won't have been designed to be serviceable.

EDIT: Having just said that, looking at the parts diagram (http://eucatparts.com/?action=cat_ford_part&s_id_part=1234931&s_id_model=118&s_code_image=G014957307), I'm not sure if item 13466A (finis no. 1364046) may be an LED (there are several of 'em shown in the cluster), in which case all is not lost.

Hi, thanks for that, but I think that is the 2006- 2010 cluster, which used standard bulbs! I'm sure your right about ford not selling you just the LEDs separately, I think my plan will be to buy a new/2nd hand unit  off eBay, and see if I can separate the old one.
