2017 LED Low Beam Base Holder suggestion?

Hi,

I'm looking to swap out my recently purchased 2017 Tucson's halogen low beams with some LED bulbs, but noticed that the base connector for the halogens is where the bulb orientation is locked and doesn't allow for room for the LED heat sync.

Has anyone successfully swapped out halogens for LED on a 2016/2017 Tucson and could recommend a base holder/adapter that would fit the LED heat sync?

Thanks!

Good luck finding the correct base holder for LEDs. There's a base holder for HIDs but even that doesn't hold the bulb properly and it isn't oriented correctly. I had to modify mine and pretty much glue the bulb onto the base holder to make it work.

I used those and had to cut them to run the wires and then I used epoxy to secure them.

Which lights do you have? I have the halogen ones and that is not the correct holder.

Do the H7 LEDs you have have a fan on the back or one of the flexible heat syncs? Can you please post a link to the Facebook page if they work for you? Thanks!
