Replacing Reverse Lights on i30CW
« May 30, 2018, 12:07:44 »
Hi,

I'm looking to replace the reverse light (white) on my 2011 i30CW (Elantra Touring). I can't seem to find any info on the net about the size of the bulb I should be using.

Best I could do was find #921, but no confirmation on if it will actually fit or not.

While I'm at it, anybody got the size for the other bulbs?

I can't take the bulbs out until the weekend to see, so hopefully somebody here knows.

Well, honestly have not paid close attention to mine but the parts catalog is suggesting there are 3 dual filament, 1 wedge, and 1 amber

3 x 12v 21/5Watt globe, part number they give is 18644-27088L




1 x 12V 15watt wedge, 18643-16004N

 

1 x either 18642-27007N or 18642-21008N ( blinker)





Not sure which is the reverse at this stage but the wedge is above the blinker so likely it is the reverse

Cool thanks. With pictures too!

I'm pretty sure the wedge bulb is the reverse one. I'm looking to change that over to LED now that one has burnt out. Best I could find was #921 from some random website.

Yeah. I believe I am getting something like that. Just ordered off of ebay. It will be a surprise either way if it fits or not.

Has anybody on the forum done the replacement? I think I'm going to be replacing the rest of the lights soon too. They are probably coming up to their useful life.

Awesome!

Not sure if I'm going to replace the other lights with LEDs yet. You did the front lights too?

I only did LED"S for park and indicator on the front, HID's in low beam and left the high beams alone as they're a prick of a fitting...low beam fitting isn't much better TBH.

Yea, the low/high beams seem more expensive, I'll be holding off on those for a while and I find them to be fine anyways. With the el-cheapo LEDs for the back lights it is cheaper and easier to replace.
