not sure what to order
If you do work out what bulbs to order, please share what you bought and where. Also, how well they work etc. It could be really helpful info to have if anyone else wants to change their interior bulbs

hi
how easy are they to fit? is it a case of just swapping the bulbs over?
thanks
Astra 1.4i Turbo 150 SRI
Ordered a set of these off of Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00YDSR7AG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

They work quite well and add a nice white light to the interior of the car and boot. Don't try and use them though to replace the bulbs for the License Plate, unfortunately throw a CANBUS error on the car when fitted (currently got a request sitting open with the seller to see if they can rectify this issue).

Fitting wise, it is relatively easy. Just need to use a thin nose Flat Screwdriver to pop the white cover off where the bulbs are and then remove the old bulbs. The new bulbs will only fit in a certain way one side of the bulb leg is thinner than the other. Once fitted, just pop the cover back on and should be good to go (though please note, the new LEDs I linked are slightly longer than the old bulbs but will still fit in quite nicely). Just be careful when doing the back two bulbs in the roof, accidentally popped the whole assembly out when trying to replace the bulbs.

Used the same set off Amazon on my '68 plate, very pleased with the result. Shame they didn't work on our Ibiza (MY14). I'm having a little bit of a struggle (probably more being very cautious) with the boot light. How do you remove it and get the light to switch off?

Is it just a case of using a small flat headed screw driver / plastic pry bar around the edges?
