I changed all the headlights and fog lights to LEDS. Super pleased with the results. Now I'm thinking of LED bulbs for the taillights. Has anyone done this and what were the results?

First buy a set of plastic trim removal tools (Amazon). Then go on You Tube. There is a video specifically showing how to remove the Ecosport fog light. I bought the same brand of LEDS for my high and low beam headlight and fog lights. Turns out they were too big, and I had to notch out the plastic backing behind the light assembly. GTR lighting has a Mini Led that would probably work without modification. Do your research on You Tube. There is a wealth of info on there. Good luck and let me know how you made out.

How did you manage the fogs? I was afraid I'd break the plastic.
I haven't done much to the Eco, but my FiST has LED taillights and reverse lights and I love them.
Get a kettle of hot water and pour it around the outside shape of the fog light, this will soften the plastic and help prevent breakage.
Be aware that the actual fog light itself is made of extremely brittle plastic!

I haven't really looked for LED taillights for this car, but I love them in my Fiesta. I got some LED backup lights on it, too, and they're really bright. Was thinking about that for the Eco.
Was looking at these, but I haven't bought them yet. https://www.amazon.com/AUXLIGHT-Replacement-Reverse-Parking-Running/dp/B07RPF5TLZ/ref=sr_1_2?qid=1664649179&s=automotive&sr=1-2&vehicle=2018-54-6996------------1&vehicleName=2018+Ford+EcoSport&th=1

EDIT: Bought them. I'll let you know how it goes.
I've kitted my car out with LED's. The only problem I found was that even though they claimed to be CANbus compatible I had problems! If I put the indicators, rear lights and brake lights on all at once the indicators would flash fast indicating a fault.
I fixed the issue by inserting a resistor across the indicator and brake light terminals in the rear lights.
