LED Instrument Cluster and LED Dash Lights for 2001 Opel Corsa GLS 1.4
I am the proud owner of a 2001 Opel Corsa 1.4 GLS.
Brief history - this car was my constant ride during the years 2007-2009, post which i moved out of Hyderabad and the car was used as a 2nd car within my family, Mostly handled by drivers - Scratched, misused, abused and what not.
This Corsa has been underused since the past year or so and was kept to a corner where it collected quite a bit of dust, but no rust. I moved back to Hyderabad a month back and decided to start re-using the car, my initial thoughts were to sell it - but, knowing what the market is for a Corsa i decided against it. now that the plan to sell it got shelved, i decided to get it back up and running. one trip to the Kun service center and the car was back in shape mechanically (well, almost - Ordered a new windscreen, front swing arm, and power window switch kit which should come in the next 10 days or so from Gujarat). I would like to give a mention to Kun Service Adviser Vijay raju who really did a fantastic job of identifying all the problem areas, repairing the parts which needed to be and being an overall good guy. The service experience was exemplary.
I have been driving the car around for the past 2 weeks, my respect for German engineering has hit an all time high. This car is 12+ years old, done more than 1,00,000 Kms, weathered the weather and bad drivers and inconstant servicing; but, with a little bit of love and care it is purring like a dream. The AC works like a charm - cools the cabin quickly, i'm getting around 12 kms to the litre, pulls into 3 figures pretty quickly and the suspension eats up the bad roads like nobody's business. In short - i dont think i need a new car, when the old one works so well (touch wood).
Ahem! now the LED conundrum - I want to replace all the lights within the car to White LED's, especially the ones behind the instrument cluster, behind the AC switch/dash and below the power windows. (Images for sample only - and they belong to their original owners)
after some research i have found out that the parts i need are the following:
1. 509T LED's - around 10
2. T5 LED's - around 10
I have found some good DIY videos out there for doing the replacing, (
Could someone please help me source these specific LED's here in India or connect me to the right person/company which can do this for me. Any help would be highly appreciated, will definitely post the pre & post pics once done for future reference on this forum.
