Hello Bedlam, Thanks for your link to the LED bulb for use in the boot.

Is it a direct replacement for the W5W bulb that is presently fitted or do I need to modify the holder? You are correct as it was a bit of a fiddle to remove the metal cover but if I can increase the light level in the boot it would be great. Thanks.

I replaced a single LED board (W5W) on mine with a 4 LED board, but looking at your pics you will have to remove the lampholder and then slot the LED board in

Thanks for your input on that Bedlam. The lamp holder assembly seems to be bonded to the plastic lens so I have emailed the company in your link and I'll wait for them to reply.

I'm interested in purchasing much more bright led light in to my Atecas (2017) luggage area/boot. I don't live in uk and because of brexit-hassle (in freight transport) I prefer purchasing from China for example. I searhed Aliexpress, but did not find any led light that would convince me for sure that it will fit and work right. What should I take into account?
For example, are these suitable dimensions, thus too little light power? https://m.aliexpress.com/item/329855290 ... .jpg_.webp
Or T10 interface / what specs?

I fitted the same as Bedlam to my boot, absolutley brilliant light.

Came packaged in an genuine Audi marked box, light unit was a bit bigger than the original, but easily fitted after filing small amount of trim away.

When opening up boot at night it even lights up my neighbours driveway !

Re: Interior Boot Light Not Working

Well, I have a 6 month old Cupra Ateca that I bought from a dealer a month ago. Unfortunately said dealer is 200 mike# away.... I’d noticed that there was no boot light, and assumed the bulb had blown. I’d read here that the original wasn’t very bright anyway, so, 2 birds one stone, I bought an 8 LED replacement. So today I went out to put the new lamp in. Popped out the original and discovered why it wasn’t working... It wasn’t connected to anything. Not only that, but I can’t find the wire to which it should be connected! Does anyone have / could someone take photos of a “good” installation?

If anyone wants to brighten their luggage area I can recommend the 4 LED version of this

A bit fiddly to dismantle the existing light unit but fit perfectly, will also fit cabin floor lights
Thanks for the tip - I've just ordered a 4 LED option. Will be nice to have a brighter boot compartment! :)
