    They were a pain in the butt. You have to get at them from the wheel well below. Its like capsule, you have to remove a cap to get at the socket. DIfficult to explain. I would have to check it again, its been almost a year now.

    Re: LED brake lights

    Were you able to do it without removing the front wheel? I'm dying to know if LED's would fit in there. A few in this thread said no but it looks like it would fit no problem. I guess I'll have to remove the bulb when I have a chance and check it out.

    sorry if dumb questions, but what an S-10 flasher and where do you install it? Is it flash relay?

    S-10 is a chevy pickup that uses single bulb tail lights, hence a very light duty flasher. This was an example. Im sure the cadillac uses something a lot different. Flashers are ancient technology. Best bet is to get the LED tronics resistors. If I get a chance, I will see if its specked in the manual.

    If you want, I can see about a quantity buy, then mail them out.
    What I need is the bulb #s or LEDtronics #s and the amounts for each one.
    Someone needs to take their tail light assembly apart, or look in a manual.
    Email me if you want and I will make a list.

    Re: LED brake lights

    Ok, after all the interest only three people responded with an email address to date.

    I am getting ready for the buy, which looks like it is gonna to be small quantity given the # of people who didn't give up this info.

    I WILL NOT order lamps based on a request posted on the board.

    So one more time.

    If you want the LEDtronics lamps, I need to know how many, which ones, and your EMAIL ADDRESS.

    Email me:
