How To Install Map Light/Dome Bulbs in 2005-2012 Mustangs

This installment of writeups goes over the installation of LED dome light bulbs on the 2005-2009 Mustangs.

Tools Required:

  • None

You first want to remove the cover to access the dome bulbs. Simply grasp the cover firmly and pull down.

Next, use your thumb or a thin point and depress the tab holding the harness to the grey connector. Once you release the tab, gently pull the dome bulb cover away.

Take the assembly to a clean work area to prepare the installation of the new bulbs. There are two separate bulbs in the housing. Remove the bulbs by pulling them straight out.

Now, remove the stock bulbs and re-install your new LED bulbs. Once this is done, you are now ready to re-install the dome housing back into the vehicle. Remember to plug the grey connector back in the harness. Finally, line up the tabs on the dome housing as shown below.

Check to make sure your lights work and that completes the installation. Now you have a brighter light to help make things easier to see inside your Stang!

Installing Clear Or Smoked Rear Side Markers & LED Bulbs In 05-09 Mustangs

In this write-up we add a set of clear rear side markers and red led bulbs to our 2009 Mustang GT. Installation is very simple and takes virtually minutes to do. You can find our rear side marker/LED package here – http://www.stangmods.com/Mustang-Rear-Side-Marker-Lenses-Red-LED-Bulbs-p/00980.htm

Tools Required:

  • Flat head screwdriver
  • Terry Cloth or Towel

The first step is removing the stock side marker. This is done by wrapping the end of a flat head screwdriver with a towel. Insert the end into the small gap where the sidemarker meets the body of the car and gently pull outward.

The sidemarker will be attached to the wiring harness from the vehicle. Depress the tab shown in the picture below and release the harness from the lens.

Now, remove the stock bulb housing from the lens by turning it counter clockwise. This is what you’ll be left with after removing the housing with bulb inside.

Now its time to get the clear lens and LED bulb ready for installation. Simply pull the stock halogen bulb out of its base and insert the new LED bulb. It’s important to note that the LED bulb will fit in the bulb housing two different ways, but only one way is correct. After installing the LED bulb in the small black housing, plug it into the sidemarker wiring harness. Use your key fob and unlock your doors. This will cause the LED bulb to come on. If it does not light up, then flip the position of the LED in the bulb housing.

Once you’ve done this, remove the bulb housing from the wiring harness and re-install it into the new clear side marker as shown below.

We’re almost done at this point. Take your new sidemarker with LED bulb installed and plug the sidemarker wiring harness back in.

The clear lens has an OEM fit. Simply push the lens back into place and you should hear/feel it snap in. It does not require much force to get it on so don’t force things!

Your installation is now complete!
