One thing lacking on the CT200h is not enough lighting when using the rear compartment. Even after I upgraded the rear compartment light with brighter LEDs, it wasn't bright enough to lit the area behind the car.

I decided to add 2 pieces of 9W LED Eagle Eye lights (from eBay) to the inside of the rear hatch door.

Hardest part was taking apart the plastic trims covering the inside of the rear hatch door. Wiring was straight forward by tapping into the 12V from the rear compartment light assembly and adding an on/off switch for the new 2 LED lights that are connected in parallel.

I mounted the 2 LED lights near the bottom of the rear hatch door and set at an angle so they shine toward the compartment area with the rear hatch door fully opened up. Now my rear compartment is brightly lit when I'm loading and unloading in low lit parking lot or at night time.

Attached are pictures of the final installation showing my rear hatch door light mod.

Cheers,
Bill :cool:

nice. I do agree there isn't nearly enough light in the hatch.
