This bulb is for the Westy map light in the padded dash boards. The one of above your head is the festoon bulb found here.
We have commissioned these new type of LED (COB) as they give a uniform light output meaning that they give almost no glare, unlike normal LED’s which always produce a strong brightness/glare from the individual diodes.
This means they are more well suited to the interior of a T3/T25/Vanagon where occupants are always quite near the lights whether map reading, cooking etc etc.
They give off virtually no heat so the risk of fire is minimised and the power consumption is around 90% less than a standard bulb.
No tools are required for fitting, simply remove your old bulb and fit the LED festoon bulb in its place. We have noticed that the map light bulb holders do vary slightly so if you have the smaller type you will need to manipulate it slightly to hold the bulb. It is easy to do and holds the bulb no worries.
These bulbs will fit any T3/T25/Vanagon, any Bay window 72 onwards or any festoon type light fitting with contact dimensions of 36mm – 37mm.
These LED’s are polarity sensitive, they need to be in the correct orientation otherwise they won’t work. You can’t short them, so if at first they don’t work, twist 180degrees and reinstall.
