I have changed the LEDs in my old cluster just for a bit of fun, not very hard to do and am going to change the ones in the icc one day.

You need to get SMD LEDs for this, and you have to make sure you have a fine tipped soldering iron. With the cluster you have to take it out and pretty much take everything apart on it to get to the LEDs. Soldering them should take about 30min if you know what your doing. Just make sure you dont put heat on them for too long cos you can melt the LEDs.
