LED lights

Hi all
Just collected a 2017 Cooper Clubman Chili, only extras being metallic paint, CLI and sun protection glass i.e. A standard spec Clubman Chili with regards to LED lights. I'm trying to determine exactly which lights are LEDs and which are normal bulbs and can I change them or do they have to be changed at a dealer?

I know the dipped and high beams, front fog and daytime driving lights are LEDs but not sure about sidelights, side repeaters and all rear lights.

Any help would be appreciated

Regards
Robin

Pop them out and have a look?

I suspect that "pop them out" won't be quick. I remember my 2008 TT required the whole light unit to be removed just to swap the side light bulb. Also the manual does state that the main light LED is a dealer only swap so I need to know which ones I can "pop" out.

I'm not familiar with your model of Clubman but I'd suspect that the side repeater bulbs will slide out just like all the previous models and the front side/ repeater lights will be accessed via under the wheel arches. The rear lights again will be accessed via a panel.

Sean, thanks for the reply. I may have to calm down my super controlling nature and actually give it a go. It does seem odd (to me at least) that there isn't a definitive list of models, chosen options and bulbs - maybe I need to start one!

Thanks again
Robin

Have you tried eurocarparts.com and see whats listed against the car on their site? Getting a new model of car is always daunting but I'm sure you'll work it out!

When I enter my reg it doesn't further refine the choices by Cooper and Chili options so effectively lists all bulbs. Great site though, thanks

eurocarparts won't break the cars spec down as they work on models. All 3 of my Minis are Chili's and 2 of them are Cooper D Clubmans
