Centre Console Mod

Recommended Posts

guys, i found this on the jaycar website.

http://jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?URL=i...mp;SUBCATID=375

i know the console mod required t5 globes and i am wondering whether these would be good or not..

a number of stivo owners here have done the mod and im wondering whether any of u guys have come across this from jaycar?

and the pricing of the globes arent too bad either..

any feedback and/or advice will be most appreciated.

thanks guys

I would steer clear of LED replacements like that. They aren't that bright and they will leave you rather disappointed. I would chose an LED replacement (like those you find on eBay) that looks like this:

I need to get a new replacement globe for the Clock light, the LED has gone in it.

For There is:

1x - clock light

2x - one on each side in between a/c dials

1x - behind lower compartment flap

i think there is another one somewhere... but i can't remember where it is lol :P

i just finished changing the cig lighter bulb to a larger T5 led but had to replace the original plastic holder with a T5 wedge holder (sorry no pics of that)

the buttons are t3 and t4 neo wedges. none of the ebay leds are bright enough and ones at autolumination are pricey. someday :D

gears is same as ac dials, T5. but have to remove the center console to access it.

3 T5 is all that is needed correct (2 aircon + 1 Clock)

What was shipping time like?

yeah 3 t5. an ebay led for the clock is fine. they took nearly 3 weeks i think <_<

there is a fourth t5 behind the ashtray but no point to put a Matrix 3led one. instead i extended it and moved it to the glovebox since they turn on with parkers :D

Hey Chicken where did you get that T5 wedge plastic holder from and is it a direct replacement from stock?

its a twist lock T5 base from autolumination 74socket.gif

its not a "direct" replacement of the stock holder but it "twist locks" in the hole perfectly. i had to cut a hole at the bottom of the T5 base to solder the wires to the contacts.
