DIY console light change


Recommended Posts

Here is some pics

Pretty much

1.Take Out (someone else has done a DIY on this so search)

2.turn over and uncsrew all the screws at the back

3.gently jam a screw driver along the top to unclip backing

4.remove backing

5.pull up plastic clip

6.remove white cable

7.unsrew 2 screws on circuit board

8.lift circuit board

9.Remove lights by turning, remove sleeve

10.put on new sleeve

repeat for the lights you want

then reverse to put back toghetter

I used T-5mm narve sleeves, as you can see they are orange and not red as it says on the packet. I think you need 8 of them so buy 2 packs so you get 10, so you have 2 left for the ash tray and cigerette lighter. Cost is about $3 per pack, so it'll cost you $6. They dont fit on any of the lights. Bigger lights need to be trimmed down, and smaller ones need to be trimmed and superglued.

Plus this probably will void warranty of the climate control and you may break something. So I take no responsibility for this as this is just a an explaination of how I performed this task.

Step 1

Here is the finished product, but I forgot to turn the lights on so the small ones dont show up. But yeah its orange, not red (dodgy batch I think). It comes up really even and bright. I'll post up pics when I get the red narva led's with bases.

Brisbane? Im from Victoria
