There are so many tool kits out there and they all seem good enough to get the job done. Take a look at a set like the one below.Thanks! I will pickup a set os nylon tools. Any recommendations?
I will probably work on this next weekend and post in process pictures for those that are interested.
I searched the forums and couldn't find a write up about it. Thought I might after a couple years. Rather than starting a new thread, I'll just post here from my experience. I didn't plan on doing a write up, but as I got going I thought it could be a good idea for others. I purchased the Subaru Footwell Illumination Kit. I can't recall which site I got the instructions from, but I know one of the parts purchase sites has the instructions attached for many accessories. This was from the previous part #:Has anyone installed the footwell illumination kit themselves? If so, any tips? My kit arrived today and the instructions had many more trim removal steps than I was anticipating. Any help would be appreciated!
I understand that the footwell lighting brightness is controlled by the dashboard brightness setting.I had the dealer install on my 2020 Ascent. There were two issues:
1) LED under the driver's side was installed backwards. I had to get under there and reposition for proper lighting.
2) The Subaru part photo shows blue lighting that, I believe, is twice as bright as what mine looks like. It's not nearly that bright after installation. I'm not sure if Subaru Parts enhanced the blue lighting under the dash or if they changed the output for the photo.
