    Help Installing Xenon Bulbs!

    alright i ordered xenon bulbs for the inside of my car, as well as were the rear number plate is..but i dont know how to take the plastic covers off without breaking it.

    1) I have to install (2) bulbs at the back next to the license plate, how do i get into their to replace those?
    2) How do i open the interior dome covers, to change the light bulbs?
    3) How do i open the light covers on each door as well? in order to change the bulb..thankyou

    faq -> cts/cts-v -> interior -> "How do I install LED's on my V?"

    Short version:

    Pop the stupid push pins out of the trunk lid liner.
    Unscrew the 8 nuts that hold the license plate bezel to the trunk lid.
    Drop the trunk, but don't close it.
    Tilt the whole license plate bezel with CHMSL forward towards yourself.
    The license plate bulbs on right on top in the middle.
    Unscrew them, pop them out, put the new ones in.
    Reverse.

    Re: Help Installing Xenon Bulbs!

    nah i dont..it was a kit, 2 door lights, 2 floor lights, 2 license plate area lights, and 2 dome lights. I dont even kno if these will work or wha not, because i ordered the LED bulbs and they gave me the ORIGINAL, hopefully they still fit. Let me try these out, have em in probably tonight or tommorow, ill take a pic, and if you like them you can order them from their site (i wouldnt consider it, since they sent me the wrong ones) but if they look hot, ill show you which ones and were to get em.

    I bought them from a STS V member for 210 shipped... I still have my old lights... I think they go for about 60 though...I think its worth it....It looks super clean on a black caddy...

    aigh i installed it..will take pics tommorow..doesnt look bad though, just replaces all the lights with a white light..my favourite is when i open my doors and the door lights are whitee. the number plate lights look alright too..not as bright as i wanted it to be but still good..it came with bulbs for everything except the bottom feet area lights.

    The CTS coupe didn't come with LEDs? Interesting.

    Anyways, welcome to the forums. However you best ask this in the CTS coupe area.
