My gole is to change the Puddle Lights on my 2002 Taurus.
From the White to Blue to match my led's and neons. I need to know if anyone has done this or know how to take off the cover leading to the Puddle Lights.

Ford does not have a listing for this buib, the guy i talk to said it should just be a normal builb thats why it's not listed.

If you know anything please any info would help...

What is a puddle light?
Is that the courtesy light in the door? Or is that the fancy lights that they are putting in the side view mirrors?

side view mirror lights... most likely, the lightbulb is like the ones used in your gauge cluster and other interior lights...

After some digging around on google I found two definitions:

"Puddle light - the puddle light is part of the rear light over the license plate
which lights up the ground behind the vehicle when the trunk is unlocked."

-AND-

"Puddle light - A light in the underside of the outside rear-view mirror that
shines down to show you if you’re about to make a soggy mess of your Gucci loafers."


I'm guessing it's the latter.

It is the later... I have them
They are under the mirror
As for changing them, I haven't ventured down that route yet....

I wonder how genIV mirrors would look on a genIII. I like the idea of having lights there. Think I might look into that. Anyone else done it?

99, KJ something or other (sorry I forgot your name!) did it... he had a g4 taurus, but bought a g3 and replaced the g3 side mirrors with the g4. looks SWEET. however he didnt have puddle lamps, but he says they are the same type of connection.. so it can probably be done. I'm wanting to replace mine with puddle g4's this summer!

i thought about possibly putting puddle lights in my g4, but decided against it. i know there is wiring to my mirrors, but probably none for lighting. the puddle lamps only come on at certain times, and i just dont feel like messing with a wiring adventure like that.
