    I have a new (new to me!) E class w212 estate. I have replaced most of the standard bulbs with LEDs - rear number plate, rear boot sides, rear passenger overhead light, front & rear footwell, glove box & front overhead.
    The only problem is the rear passenger overhead spots. The flat blade type LED I bought is too wide to twist into position.
    Anyone used something that fits ok?
    Also how to replace the puddle lights in the wing mirror?

    I'll try upload pics at weekend as not sure how to do it from my iPhone

    I would be interested to know where you got the LEDs from, as I would also like to replace the lights in my E class.

    Sorry for delay, this was an old post of mine that I didn't check back on.

    All my LEDs were off ebay. I used all flat blade type ones, except the rear head lights which needed a 42mm festoon type fit. This rear one was a bit of a pig to fit coz its fiddly to get the trim off. I used a series of flat blades screwdrivers.
    The rear no. Plate went in after I removed the boot trim from the clips/holding pins. It went back ok coz there was plastic dowels to help align it back in place.

    The only ones that were error free/Canbus safe were the rear plate LEDs. The others were just cheap ones. The way to tell if you need error free LEDs is to remove your current halogen bulb and power the car up and see if you get an error message, if not then you can fit any LED. If you do get an error then you need an error free LED.
    I fitted 4 in the footwells
    2 in rear no. Plate
    2 in rear columns in the boot area (estate)
    Overhead lights all fitted too - think there was 2 in each plus the 42mm festoon.
