Retrofit LED rears?

Post by MrSM82 » Tue Apr 18, 2017 2:17 pm

Hi all, tried to search but the forum wouldn't let me as the words are too common :D Has anyone retrofitted LED rears to their Astra K? What would the process be, could a dealer do it? Luckily with the Astra K the standard rears look pretty good but might consider LEDs as a nice addition.

You can do it yourself, rear lights can be easily removed (you need to take them out in order to change lightbulbs). Its pretty expensive though, you need to replace all four lights (2 on the sides and 2 on the trunk door), they are about 150€ each.

Part numbers are allegedly 39015946 and 39015947 for the side ones, 13401167 and 13401166 for those on the trunk door (at least for right-hand drive hatchback).

Are you sure it's just a simple swap? And no warning lights come on dash?

I have no idea since I haven't tried it, but I really doubt the wiring would be different for LED and non-LED version.

It wont work... Rear Leds needs some extra module (programing, etc) as far as l know my friend tried to exchange them with another friend and they actually were "working" but in strange way... Blinking and behave not as they should. Not sure if they asked authorised service about that but i think they did and costs were so high that it was not worth it ;)

I saw on eBay an Astra K Elite Write off which was being broken for parts. I messaged the seller (just out of interest really) to see how much he'd want for the LED rears, and he said £250 for all of them which was quite a steal really providing they all worked :lol:

I'd be interested if anyone on here has successfully swapped out their clusters for LED ones? Surely it must be possible :cry:

Although I dont live in the UK, I think it applies to all of us.
I asked the dealer for the cost and the possibility to retrofit the LED taillights.
He replied that the parts would cost 750 euros and labour around 100 euros.
I asked him if he would guarantee them to work without errors. The dealer consulted Opel, but could not tell me if he could make it error-free.
I think it nearly a grand is too much for a gamble....

It is possible. Main problem is the bulb error, which need load resistor.

That my car :).

Small lamps are easy to instal. Need simple modification.

Bigger problem is with stop/position lamps. Led lamps are two diffrent cables for stop and position modules. Normal lamps have only one cables for both.

Now I have full worked all led lamps in my car but i used analog relay and this is not perfect solution for me. Now I tried to used ssr relay.

When I made good solution then I put diagram on the forum.

BTW. Sorry for my English ;).
