if you know how to solder go for it my autolec told me they were 5mm wedge gloges i pulled it apart and the globes look like pins there is about 20 of them to light the dials i have never seen globes like these i think you would be able to buy blue ones from ford but your probably lookin at 20 bucks a globe aparantly works out cheaper to buy a xr6 cluster

They're surface mount LEDs. All of about 3mm long by 1.8mm wide. And you have to desolder the old ones, put the new ones on - in the right direction, all without damaging the circuit board.

Fine for people with good soldering skills, but for most people they'll break something.

I changed the white LEDs in my window switches to blue ones, that was hard enough (same LEDs).
