Are the front and rear indicator lights powered by LED or halogen lamps on the XE?

I've spent hours searching the internet and watching numerous youtube videos but still unable to figure out the answer.

From I can feel it appears XE uses halogen lamps for the indicator lights. Could somebody confirm?


I know to most of you this may not a big deal on what lamp technology XE uses but it really bugs me and am so eager to find out.


Hope someone can solve the mystery for me.
Many thanks.

Good question, interested me too. Checking the owners handbook they would appear to be halogen.

How easy do you think it would be to possibly change it out to an LED bulb? Apparently it might not be as easy as swapping bulbs.

what lamp technology do you have experience with?
i'm sort of new to most of it since all i've really dealt with were halogens and very basic projector and HID setups.

My b.f. added LED's to my ATS in places where they were regular halogen bulbs with just a bulb swap using good quality LED bulbs.
But it depends on the actual car and how the manufacturer's electrical system is designed because sometimes or certain placements on the car may require load resistors due to the lower current draw of the LED making the vehicles system think a bulb is blown or some even require changing the flasher.
Plus there is CanBus LED's.

Best thing to do when in doubt is to go to the pro's, you might pay a bit extra but it's worth it having someone of knowledge right there to hack away at it.
