Whats the bulb type in our cluster?

I'm currently swapping all of my green bulbs in the interior to blue LEDs. I know the sunroof switches have a 8mm base, and the AC running lights have 10mm bases. I bought both about half way down the page. They are called the neo bulbs and come with the bases.

I have not had time to tear out the cluster and take a look behind it. Does anyone know what bulb type I need and how many of them I will need?

Re: Whats the bulb type in our cluster?

Awesome write up, thanks for that link. Now I will know how to remove everything when the time comes. There's got to be a simpler way to replace the bulbs.

The other bulbs pop right in there without having to solder anything on the AC and sunroof switches. All the bulbs in my last car were the same way. There's gotta be a bulb you can just order and pop in there without having to worry about a resistor.

Re: Whats the bulb type in our cluster?

I bought these and here brighter than the ones with a single led bulb. you can see that this one has 3 on one.

you will need 5 bulbs and you wont need a base, because you can just take out the bulb in your original base, but i would recommend using hot glue to keep the bulbs in the base so when driving it wont shake and come loose

If you got anymore questions just send me a message but its pretty easy

Re: Whats the bulb type in our cluster?

I went ahead and ordered the same type of bulb but one up. I got the 5 led matrix version. I also got the AC bulbs too. Now all I need to do is find some damn acetate paper for the temp and fuel gauges. I can't find it anywhere. :(

Re: Whats the bulb type in our cluster?

Damn those gauges came out sweet, can't wait to put mine in. Thanks for taking those. Do anyone of you guys know where to buy acetate paper? I've tried several craft and hardware store with no luck.

Re: Whats the bulb type in our cluster?

That's exactly what I'm talking about! I almost went in one the other day, but figured they only sold model airplanes, RC cars and so fourth. I'll definitely go check it out. Thanks!

Re: Whats the bulb type in our cluster?

Well I finished my temp and fuel gauges for now. I used two layers of blue plastic paper and kept the original light blue plate that was already laying in there. It came out a little cloudy, but still looks alright. I don't know if it's the paper, or because I left the blue plates in there. : /
