    Back Up Light Removal 2018 CX-5?

    I can't find any info in the owners manual, or at least it alludes me, and have tried "searching" various sources to no avail.

    How does the lens come off?

    I would like to install LEDs.

    Any advice much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    This particular info is in the Owner's manual.

    I am trying to find out how to get to the "Back Up" lights located in the hatch.

    Perhaps they are already LEDs and are not serviceable by the consumer.

    I saw that in our manual but it didn't click with me that they were inferring that those lights were all LEDs and included the Back Up lights.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me.

    I guess the only exterior lights that aren't LEDs, besides the license plate lights, are the turn signals.

    I plan on converting the turn signals to LEDs in a few weeks. I did this conversion to my 16 MX-5 over a year ago. I just need to get the front and rear LEDs ordered. I already have the necessary resistors.

    Front and rear turn signals along with license plate are only exterior bulbs that aren't led
