When you get to the driver's door with all the mirror buttons and stuff, it will come apart slightly different, but it's simple.

After removing the switches from the door, you end up with this:

-
Backside (switch is on the left):

-
Push the pins holding the switch in, and pull out to remove it and get this:

-
Carefully bend the plastic surrounding the inner piece of the switch away from the tabs holding it in, and remove this piece as well.

-
Here it is apart:

-
The bulb is sticking up here, just remove it and solder the new LED that you want.


Then snap all the pieces together, install into your doors, and enjoy! Sorry the photos are so awful, camera and playbook were dead, so they're from my BB.

That's great man!

I'm slowly doing all my instrument lights in blue and the doors were bugging me. I knew they came apart but just couldn't figure it out.

Re: LEDs came today!

Anyone tried this yet? I'm starting to question if these bulbs will work, but I don't understand as much about the technical aspect as I wish I did. All the other lights being 12v and soldering irons scare me. I really want to replace them though.

Re: LEDs came today!

12v no worries, I'm good at soldering but I don't have the time to do it right now I'll have to skip that part of my upgrades and get back to it

Re: LEDs came today!

I've been busy doing an engine swap and haven't had the time to do this, I'll probably get it done this weekend.

Impressive. I both fear and look forward to doing this one day. My 4.0 is only sitting at like 135 though.
