    LED Reverse Light DIY B7

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Hello everyone,
    Here is a little DIY I put together a few days ago to add LED's to your reverse light.
    You can use any LED (of course the proper ones to fit your model and housing) to get this job done.
    Here are some steps to follow. This has been discussed here, but I wanted to add a few pictures.

    step 1: Removing screw cover



    step 2: Remove screw holding tail light housing



    step 3: Don't pull the tail light housing from this angle. You will brake the two tabs holding it on the left side



    Use this tool and pry it to get it loose or a small screw driver



    step 4: remove the housing



    Step 5: Unplug the harness from the housing
    As you can see mine was done but I wanted to tape it up better.


    step 6: locate the brown and blue with red stripes wires. My pin shows # 4 and 6 (drivers side housing)



    step 7: These are the wire tap used.






    step 8: use above wire taps to tap into the two wires from pin #4 and 6



    Step 9: Closer view

    ]

    Step 10: Adding the reverse wire (blue/red stripes) in the wire tap



    Step 11: Adding step 10 with one side of the wire coming from the resistor, see black cable




    Step 12: Crimp them tight together to make a solid contact/Connection


    step 13: Do the same as above but you are going to use the brown wire.
    Crimp the brown wire with the other wire coming from the resistor.



    step 14: you should now have something like this


    As you can see there are two wires each coming from on of these connectors (wire taps)
    Brown with black and blue/red stripes with black. The black cables are the wires coming out from the wire bound resistor. See pic in Step 7.

    Step 15: tape everything back together.



    Step 16: mount your resistor to the chassis of the car for additional heat sink



    Try to average and mount it a little low so the housing can fit without touching it.

    You should now end up with this.





    If I forgot something please don't hesitate to chime in.
    I'm just trying to share and help the community as it has done for me.

    This was done on the driver's side housing, but it also pertains to the passenger side. The pin numbers will be different, but the colors of the wires should be the same.


    Enjoy.

    Yes, if you have a reverse camera you will see the difference.

    No resistor... just a reg 1156 LED bulb, not the projector type.

    I wonder if these would be good?
    They have projector style on the front of the LED bulb, but also allow light from the sides (which would reflector on the mirror reverse area of the tail light).

    Yeah the blue is a bit visible, but you know me, it goes well with my setup. If you want a more OEM look they make them in silver or you could always paint them. The other lights you found should be even better if they fit, the more LEDS the merrier.

    There are brighter ones out there. I just used these because I had them for a while sitting.
    The picture was taken without applying brakes, so no extra lighting from the brakes lights.
    They will soon have leds in them too.

    Could you use 3m tape to mount the resistor? Drilling holes always worries me about rust.

    I'm not to sure how well they would hold up with the heat. The chassis will help as a heat sink which is better.

    Yeah understandable. I guess you could just put some grease where you'll drill

    How hot could the resistor get? I mean your reverse lights are on for what 5 maybe 10 secs?? I think double sided tape should hold up okay

    Good point! I'm going to try that soon, once I get maintenance done.

    Double sided tape should be fine. I have it on my drl resistors that get 400 degrees hot and I've had them for over two years.

    Yeah. As long as the metal you apply it to is clean, you should be good to go. I had to redo it within one week of installation because my surface was not clean apparently. I removed the 3M tape, cleaned it with rubbing alcohol, and reapplied.

    If it works for you, go with it.
