I recently installed LED license plate and reverse bulbs in my Limited. Very simple, straightforward install.

I was concerned about the new bulbs being different temperatures, so I chose Phillips LED's that I know are the same 6000k temp. They may cost a little bit more than the set quoted in the OP, but the extra money was well worth the piece of mind.

Reverse bulbs: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077FMLN7B/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

License plate bulbs: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B077G61NB7/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

Hi Spectacle,

Thanks for sharing the links! I'm also very particular about the temperature matching, so I understand exactly where you're coming from. Their item description unfortunately doesn't mention how many lumen these bulbs are. Can you post some pics of these installed so we can see how bright they are? How is visibility in the rear view camera?

I tried taking pictures with my iPhone and they came out terrible. I tried with our old Nikon and they came out barely legible. Here's the only two I could get.

Visibility in the rear view camera is slightly better than stock. The stock cameras are very good in low light.

When you remove the license plate light assembly, does the bulb socket turn clockwise or counter clockwise to remove. On mine it's very tight (that's good) and I don't want to break it. Thanks in advance!

I have a new Jan.7, 2020 built, Black on Black Palisade. I ordered the recommended bulbs in this post, and could only get a 10-pack of the License plate bulbs.
That was very lucky, because Hyundai changed the Backup Light bulbs to be the SAME as the License Plate bulbs.
So, if you have a 2020 built Palisade, you need 4 of the W5W bulbs. These are the bulbs I ordered through the Canadian Amazon website and they worked for the the Backup and License Plate lights.


I now will try to return the P21W bulbs that are shown in the manual!
