No, the good tasting stuff is from the Artisian Well. The footwell brew tastes like it came from a well stuffed with dirty socks, and Footwell light has half the calories, but all the alcohol and all the gymn sock taste.Footwell light? Is that for spotting angry garden Gnomes.
My boss rented a 2016 Chevy Suburban LT a while back and noticed that it had a very similar dim light in the driver and front passenger foot well. You could hardly see it on the floor, but was more noticeable on the lower part of my pants. IMO, its a nice little touch without being distracting at night. As for the CR-V, I thought I remember reading another post on this forum where someone mentioned there was also a dim light in the center console on his 2017 CR-V Touring. Is this true?The interior foot well lights on the Touring are some of the dimmest lights I have seen in a modern vehicle, I didn't even know they were there! Ill be upgrading mine with something better soon.
I haven't done the passengers side yet under the glove box (got too dark), but the drivers side took less than a minute to take out. Very easy if you have any mechanical aptitude at all (no tools needed to take it out, everything just clips/snaps out).Are the clips hard to get out to do the drilling?
I'm pretty sure that cover was intentional. As I've said in a prior post on this thread, Chevy also has this for some of their vehicles like the Suburban. I think the soft white light in the footwell is what car manufactures like Chevy and Honda are looking for to add a luxury touch to the interior.I investigated the LED footwell lighting and saw that the piece which Honda used to attach the LED light to the panel under the footwell is solid white - the entire piece is one mold and it has no transparency. No wonder the LED light is not getting through!
This is the clip that holds the led which light is SUPPOSED to shine through?!? Almost wonder if the middle was meant to be drilled out so...
Hmm, interesting. Is it possible to change out the LED with a brighter one?I would agree a nice soft white light works nice in a luxury, but with that cover on it is basically no light at all, and the little light that gets through looks more yellowish. It looks like an old almost burnt out filiment bulb,, dim and tacky, not soft white.. For me it's much better with the hole drilled in it, nice soft white LED. From a practical standpoint with the cover on it's basically useless, it only lights up something if you put your hand two inches from it.
Weird that the Canadian model would remove the foot well ambient lighting on the Touring trim. After discussing this topic with others on the forum and looking through the parts catalog for the USDM CR-V Touring, it has been confirmed that there is ambient lighting for the front foot wells, front door handles and an ambient light inside of the center console storage compartment.Just checked my Touring in the dark garage
Canadian Touring Models only have ambient Light in the door handles- not bright and useless I would say.
NO footwell light
