It might be an idea to sand the led's with wet/dry to give a matte effect to distribute the light better

Nice guide. :)

 

I did this months ago, but with blue LEDs to go with my lighting scheme, lol. :rolleyes:

I swapped to the white led the other day... Massive improvement over the blue. Now, where to put those spare blue ones??? Any suggestions?

Awesome guide, looks so much better than the stock bulbs & only a fraction of the price too!!!

Good write up mate. The only thing I would suggest to do on top of that is either

 

Option1: Slide some heat shrink over the resistor after step 6 PB010095.JPG

 

Option 2: after completing step 7, get mum's hot glue gun out and put a dob of glue over the exposed resistor/LED legs PB010096.JPG

 

This way they will be protected from shorting against itself or anything else it may contact. :)

cheers for the write up dude i also put one in the rear demistor switch and works sweet too.

if anyone knows how to dismantly the hazard and or fog light switches let me know and ill see if it can be done to these switches. Im currently stuck on opening them.

Finished this mod last night & would like to thank the OP. I put some heatshrink around the resistor & LED anode, folded it down & then heatshrunk that as well. I used 3mm blue 1500mcd LEDs from Jaycar & think they look pretty alright, not too bright at night & a relatively even distribution of light.

 

Has anyone been able to source or find out what LEDs are used behind the recirculation indicator for example? They're little rectangular-ish ones. I don't dare replace them without knowing what voltage & current they are supplied with. I think if replaced with red ones with a blue backlight, they'd look quite good.

 

Thanks for a great guide!

Does anyone know if there are 4 LED's for the Analogue version too? I only managed to find and replace the two on the top under a plastic flap so far but havent had time to take a proper look.

 

I also just bought 4 of the T3 LED type ones off ebay for $10 so theres no soldering required, just direct screw in swap.
