pretty much in your aircon, there are two globes

all i did was solder in two led's (one facing down and the other facing right) to the wires from the other globes. I then lined the endges of the aircon with alum foil, to spread the light out evenly.. looks like it'll work a treat!


as long as you don't have to flatten the tops off i'm happy. b**ch of a job to get them 100% flat LOL

Yeh I've done everything, instrument cluser, odometer screen, climate control buttons (but not screen), trip computer screen and buttons, demister/antenna button and gear selector. All pretty easy, give me a PM if you need any help with it.

climate control screen is easy! just gotta unsolder one side, slide out the filter slide a new one in and walla!

you can just go to a tv repair place, they'll do it for you!

didnt take any pictures sorry dylan!

pretty much there are two globes, 4 wires go to the one globe, then two go from that globe to the other globe!

cut them, solder on your choice of led, we used wide angle large ones.
i had the top one shining down, and the bottom one facing right.

I had lined the edge with alum foil to make the light spread around easy!

Its very easy, here is my attempt at drawing it!
