Doesn't look like they come in blue from there. So I'm guessing twirqurky got his elsewhere.. :)

Quote:
2) Determine the Number of LED's Required. For EF/EL, DF/DL, NF/NL Models, count the following options, and add the number of Leds Required.

1 Ashtray lamp (Cannot use bulb holder)
1 Trip Computer
1 Power Antennae switch (Cannot use bulb holder)
1 Rear Window demister switch (Cannot use Bulb Holder)
1 Power / economy switch for column mounted auto transmissions (Cannot use Bulb holder)
6 Climate control system (mid, High Series) (Cannot use Bulb Holder)
6 Standard Heater / aircon system (low series) (Cannot use bulb holder)
6 All Instrument panels, (Low, Mid, High Series).


What do they mean by "cannot use Bulb Holder" ??? can you use teh same wedge type bulbs? or do you need to do something else...

I found the exact same thing i then changed it to a red and it came through orange. I think they put these blue sleeves on them so that when they go through the filter on the buttons it comes through as white

yeah, the bulbs by themselves put out a rather yellow/orange light, so the blue filter helps whiten it a bit (nappysan for light).

Ok the company that is the best is NARVA. I went to Autobarn and got them ordered in. From memory the product code is 47902, BUT WILL CONFIRM THIS TOMORROW NIGHT. The blue ones cost me 30 dolalrs for a pack of 10 and red ones cost 20 dollars for a pack of 10. THne unscrew the dash, etc lights and replace them.

The catch is I think they have polar ends, ie they need to be in a certain way. The best time to do this mod is at sunset when the light shows through and you can still turn them around if the are the worng way in.

Any questions jsut PM me
