Re: EB cluster colour, has anyone changed this?

blue leds are around 5 each then u need to buy resistors for them, they are directional so u get the blue light then it fades around the edges, im not reeally after that,the trip comp and climate look good, how did u get the led to fit into the holder that is previously there 4 the bulb? why didnt u finish the rest of the cluster?

Re: EB cluster colour, has anyone changed this?

the best way is to use LED's, globes just wont be bright enough. i changed mine to red, all i did was solder the resistor on to the LED and then soldered it into the bulb holder, easy. id recommend 2 leds per bulb holder, one wasnt bright enough.

are you talking to me or Jason(Dellboy)? i only used one but should have used 2 in each bulbholder. i can take a pic of what the bulb holder looks like with the LED in it if you want.

i will get a pic and resister value i used for you tommorow, however the resistor value will vary depennding on which LED you use and what its voltage requirements are. have got an equastion somewhere.

all you need to do is direct the LED into the light dispersing plastic
