    Has anyone replaced the two small LED lights in the overhead console that provide ambient light? One is out and the other is flickering. I've done searches for how to replace them but not found a thing. Any and all help is appreciated!

    It can be done. My Ferrari dealer did it for me. The cost in parts and labour was about $200. It was much cheaper than a whole new overhead console which is the Ferrari approved fix for the flickering LED.

    Post repair the LEDs are a lot brighter so clearly the mechanics weren’t able to exactly match the LED spec but I give them kudos for repairing rather than replacing.

    remove the u shape raised trim in the centre of the overhead console just pry out then undo screws and drop out complete unit. I am pretty sure its all in your owner manual. I tried a few different brand led globes so I could find ones that were all the same shade of white light to the ones that fit under the doors/dash/rear seat and rear overheads. just make sure you buy error free globes

    I was able to get to the panel but the bulbs are soldered in and it looks like the only replacement is to replace the entire panel. Unfortunately, those are $$$$$$. Looks like $800+ on Ricambi for a new one.

    As I said above - my dealer soldered in new LEDs. They’re brighter than the originals but I’m not complaining.
