Some interior/exterior fixes & changes - HELP

Post by Fadiel.Arendze » Mon Mar 17, 2014 4:57 pm

Hi Guys

I have a list of some interior and lighting things i want to change and fix...

1) I need assistance on how to remove the rear brake light assembly under the rear roof spoiler??? any ideas (the light works but you can barely see it when you apply the brakes, very dimm)

2) Also my seat tilt handles have broken on both sides. Any ideas on how to remove them?

3) If possible, any ideas on what spot & headlamp bulbs i can go with to get a blue light, without having to go HID? I understand the Osram Nightbreakers emit a white light? Not a fan of the standard yellowish light

4) Where can i get my hand on a red FORD emblem/badge for the back and front?

5) Can i change the green light that displays (the speedo, rev counter, water temp & fuel) on the dash to blue?

6) what is the best way to clean the roof liner? its goten a bit black in some areas

Sorry for all the question, its just these are the things i want to tackle this week...

I know if you take the cluster put there might be a red lense in that you can take out and you can go old school and paint the buld blue on get a clear 3mm perspex and paint that blue or just go to the fleamarket and buy a blue led that fits in the cluster socket just be careful not to damage the cluster wire at the top some of those wires are paper thin
Mr muscle works
Lights go for 60 55W if you go for the 100w ypu might just melt your head light lense ( you get the blue xeon lights blue tint but bright white

Hope it helps correct me if im wrong

Only my 2cents of advice.

1) I need assistance on how to remove the rear brake light assembly under the rear roof spoiler??? any ideas (the light works but you can barely see it when you apply the brakes, very dimm) remove the rubber grommet - push a flat head screwdriver in and push the metal clip out....remove the whole unit. change bulbs

2) Also my seat tilt handles have broken on both sides. Any ideas on how to remove them? get replacement clip and tension cable for 750 from ford...get them to change it...its a nightmare, you would need to split the entire seat - its a common problem on the ml6 and not one thats solved easily without paying for it

3) If possible, any ideas on what spot & headlamp bulbs i can go with to get a blue light, without having to go HID? I understand the Osram Nightbreakers emit a white light? Not a fan of the standard yellowish light phillips crystalvision h4 high low, for main, phillips crystalvision h11 for fogs...expect to pay around 400 per set.

4) Where can i get my hand on a red FORD emblem/badge for the back and front? contact c-boys, contact robin, contact cornel, contact many people who do gel overlay badges (thats their real name)

5) Can i change the green light that displays (the speedo, rev counter, water temp & fuel) on the dash to blue? contact oliver (catman) - he is the ONLY person that specialises in full LED swaps on ALL lighting units for the cars....amazing work and greatly priced.

6) what is the best way to clean the roof liner? its goten a bit black in some areas - sunlight and a damp cloth
