    Has anyone changed the standard LED interior lights above the seats in a Fiat Ducato cab? If so, what did you replace with and was it an easy job?
    We find them dazzling, way too bright and they can't be directed at the seat position for reading. In fact however we adjust them, they end up making one of us feel quite sick.
    I'm thinking any replacement would have to be of a similar saucer shape to avoid the risk of accidental bonce damage.
    Any advice appreciated
    Brian

    Brian better show us what they look like.
    I had to put lights in my cab so not all Fiat are equal.
    U can get lower luminance led lamps if u search.

    I'll post a pic tomorrow. We've been told they're lowest wattage but not confirmed. I haven't yet worked out how to remove them! I'm a bit of an amateur when it comes to changing anything inside the MH although prepared to have a bash.

    I have lights above my seat in a Fiat cab, but they weren't installed by Fiat - they are part of the work that Adria installed. So I agree we need to see the light to offer alternatives.

    Swift fit a multi led on a flexible stalk in the later ones. Perfect for getting the best reading light or turn towards the roof for a nice background light.

    First, apologies, the lights are halogen not LED as per pic below.
    It's a Swift Sundance on a 2010 chassis.
    @Derbyshire wanderer I like the idea of the flexible LED, I'll look at those.
    Is it a fairly simple job to change them? I'm not a complete numpty.

    These are them.
    It should be an easy swop as the mounting point looks the same.

    Try changing the bulbs for warm white LED's should give a softer light.
