    Does anyone know if the cover on the footwell bulb(s) snap/pry off or do you have to remove trim pieces to get to the the bulb and is it a difficult procedure? Thank you in advance.

    If I remember correctly, they just pop out, a little prying on the long side will remove the lens. Same with the lights on the bottom of the doors, if you have them (puddle lights?) I replaced all mine with 194 LED bulbs, simple fix.

    Thanks, I appreciate the information. I bet those 194 led's made a big difference. I'm thinking of going with blue colored led bulbs if I can find them.

    I replaced all of mine with LEDs and they are great. The door, footwell trunk, license plate

    I replaced mine with white LEDs. Here are different color ones: https://www.amazon.com/Yorkim-Genera...013QPHI3W?th=1 Although I am not sure how they will look. There isn't a lot of brightness left after reflector off my black (dark grey?) carpet.

    So you're saying because of your black carpeting the effect of brightness from the led bulb isn't much more significant than the stock bulbs?.... Because I too have black carpeting.

    replace the stock regular bulbs with LEDs and you will be happy. simple as that
    can spend $10-$20 total to replace the basic bulbs Hyundai did not put as LED then some more for the back up, fog lights, license plate and turn signals.

    I definitely prefer the brighter LEDs. I was just thinking out loud about how blue or other color LEDs would look, since the only light I see from those footwell LEDs is reflecting off the black carpets. Then again, they are inexpensive enough you can always try them out and see.
