Thirdly, I used some cardboard to make a model from the inside of the white plastic cover. It was a round piece about 2.6cm in diameter. With that template it was easy to cut the plastic cover into the round inset.
Now I put the inset between the white plastic and the LED board and closed everything… viola!
On the photos, you can see the difference between the original white and the new warm white LED-light.
