There are 4 globes along the top on the back of the cluster. Its an old design so the globes shine light onto clear plastic 'paths' that redirects the light over the top to shine on the front and then directs the other light behind to light up the odo etc.

In reality you need 4 globes, your choosing of colour for whatever colour you want you cluster to light up as.

how to?

three screws over the top of the cluster... 1 screw in set of switches under the cluster, then in behind these, 1 screw in each that screw up into cluster surround... cluster surround then comes off... 4 screw hold cluster in... and as mentioned its the 4 bulbs accross the top... commonly marked by blue bases, not black ones... I think there is 5 blue bases, one is high beam... If you remove them all and hold it up to the light you should be able to see which is high beam and just replace it...

I recommend 5 chip, smd 5050 Led's give the best lighting for these older clusters (of the varietys that I've tried)...

basically look like these:

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/2-x-12V-6-3-Lume ... 3cb0c15a2d

These I've found to be the best... just search in ebay for led 5050 t10 and pick the colour you want and make sure they look like the ones I attached, should give the result IMO...

Cheers,
Tim

hmmm interesting....no discrediting you timmytimtim but on the EB2 cluster I have next to me the only blue one is the highbeam. Eb Cruiza - I guess that means they'll be either blue or black.
