And you just lay it between the LCD panel and the plastic?

you have to completly remove the white rectangle bit(looking inside from the back of the unit, as elf100capri says)behind the odo.
throw it away. swap the original bulb for a blue one, or put a blue cover over a clear bulb.

the odometer needs the filter or paper to spread the led light out, (haze the led with 320 sandpaper too) otherwise the light will be brighter in the centre of the lcd

have a look here too
