Got it now Les, I'm slow. thanks

Sorry just saw your reply.

I dont have a part number or brand for the LED bulb used. They are the PCB type of which mine has 16 SMT LED's.

The hole for the bulb will only fit standard size LED bulbs. Anything bigger will not fit through the bulb hole on the headlight.

I only changed the small W5W bulbs, color match is close but not 100% but sure looks much better.

Did 5see you mention, something didn't for correctly with the new bulb? thanks again.

One of the Hardest jobs ever!

Thanks you all for this encouraging post, after 2 days





with bruised arms and hands, I almost gave up... I think the hardest part was putting the caps back on, with the fear of dropping them in the engine. So I came up with this idea in pictures below. I drilled small wholes in the tab portion of the caps and attached string on each of the caps!! 😎 They can never get lost in engine bay!

Parking light bulbs can be done at home without bumper removal












2006 Bentley Continental GT side parking light replacement both sides my experience, It took me all in 2 hours and few bruises on my hands and requires min tools and disassembly, all done and doable without any fenders, bumpers, headlight unit removals quite tricky but possible.
