Could be to do with the way the LED disperses the light or your plastic transporter is stuffed like I think mine is.

mines the same. If u look at the plastic thing that takes the light its thinner at the search button and thickens out as it gets to the other 2.

also if anyone knows the blue glow on the tacho side of the cluster looks slighty different. ive swapped globes from the other side of the cluster thinking it was them but still looks the same. must be the plastic also i guess

I have just done mine and it is the same, I'm going to try painting the plastic thing silver near the search button so it "traps" as much light in that "leg", reflects it, and gets it to the button

I have got the complete EF/EL interior in and Spider is in the process of getting it all ready to fit.

Spider, Odo LCD screen is blue like the trip, matches the cluster lights now.
