leds in dash
« on: March 19, 2016, 10:53:34 pm »
To do this you need five blue (or other color) 192 leds. I got a pack of them off ebay for about five bucks. Remove all the dash board pieces by taking out all the screws. Then unplug the message center piece and pull out the light from the fwd indicator. Next remove the cover from the instromental pannel. Pop off the green covers. This will require needlenose pliers and a screwdriver. You have to work it around the guage wothout bending it. Two of the light bulbs are easy to remove but the others will require 90 degree angle tipped needlenose pliers. Fish the pliers around the guage and pluck out the bulb. With the same pliers put the led in place and push it in with a flat screwdriver. Before it is fully in place test the lights because leds only work if they are put in the right direction. The hvack is self explanitory just pull out the light where the wires come out and replace the bulb. Now put everything back together but leave out the green filters. In person my lights look kinda purple because of the black cover soi guess you could try a lighter blue I'm not sure but it still looks really cool. Also i'm sure there's a way to completely remove the instrament pannel but i couldnt figure it out. If you can do this I'm sure the light bulbs come out the back
