I replaced the incandescent bulb with a LED. The light is now brighter and cleaner

specs on LED
12V, 10mm, 40 degree, 5 chip LED, 100ma@280Kmcd

Step 1: remove housing

Remove the housing from the door, acquire 10mm LED with resistor (for 12V)(purchased on EBay), rubber grommet and silicone if needed. remember where the hot wire (positive) is located
Now where did you get a 12 volt led?! LEDs are 3.3 votls not 12 volts
I did a search on EBay, 10mm 12v,. They were sent with the resistor already attached.
what a ripoff. Its not a 12v led its an ordinary led with a resistor attached,nothing special about that. how much did it cost?
14.99 for 10pc, 12v, 10mm, 40 degree, 5 chip LED.
I'm always happy to see another person out there converting to the almighty LED. Looks cool and helps the environment.
