stick a 3mm led in it and attach a resistor externally.

i bought monza T5 wedge globes from autobarn, straightened the wires coming out the plastic holder and the led and resistor slides straight out.
i removed the globes/holder from the switches and straightened the wires and removed them. i then refitted the leds into the switch globe holders , and refitted the wires the same as they were and put them back in.
easy enough job
