Headlight position/markers bulbs

Anyone knows what kind of bulbs are used for the front markers, and if they can be replaced?



It kinda bothers me to have amber front lights in Europe, and I was thinking of having them replaced with white ones.

If I'm not mistaking those are LEDs and cannot be changed.

I know they're LEDs, but most come with a socked. Do you know for sure if they're soldered on the headlight assembly?

Im not sure about that but in order to access the headlight assembly you need to drop the front bumper.

I know that too very well (already changed the HID bulbs with cooler temperature ones), that's why I've asked here. Taking the front bumper off it's something I can't do myself, but if this is possible I'll go to the dealer and I want to be prepared with the replacement bulbs.

You mean the little 3 orange "commas" on the side of the headlight? Or the indicator lights.

I would believe they are LEDs built in the headlight, good luck to change them, let us know if you managed to do it.

At least in Europe we don't have that "ugly" orange reflector on the side of the headlight, I know it is a US reg. but it is still awful.

From what I understand, those are integrated soldered units, not easily swapped.
