Install LEDs on Handles / Storage compartments
List of necessary tools:
- 1 Pack LED Handles / Storage compartments
- 1 flat screwdriver
- 1 Torx screwdriver (depending on vehicle)
- 1 Dremel or drill with a drill bit of 6 or more
- 1 Voltmeter
1. Remove the handle
Unscrew the Torx screw (depending on the vehicle) and take the plastic out of the handle.
2. Remove the armrest cover
With the flat screwdriver, remove the screw cover and unscrew the screw. You can then take out the plastic with the window regulator controls.
3. Tests the wires of the window regulator terminal
With the voltmeter, test each wire of the terminal in order to find two wires which will output 12V when the ignition is on and 0V when the latter is off. It is also necessary that the 12V remains when the electric window controls are actuated.
4. Drill the holes
With your dremel or your drill, drill a hole (as in the photos) at the level of the handle and at the level of the storage compartment.
You can then pass the wires through the holes to reach the window regulator terminal.
5. Connect the wires to the terminal
Connect the metal end of the wires to the terminal blocking them between the plastic of the terminal and the metal end of your original wires.
6. Glue the LEDs
Peel off the film from the first side of the adhesive and stick it on the LED. Then remove the film from the other side and stick it on the handle. Do the same for the storage compartment.
7. Reassembles the plastics
Tidy up the wires correctly and reassemble the covers. You can then repeat the operation on the other door.
