the clocks come out easy enough, the little bulbs are 509t cheap as cheap, one for each display screen and a couple up the top. there is an orange plastic stip in there aswell, take that out and the colour will be more vibrant

I wouldn't bother on the dials front mate... If you want to do a proper job, get a LED strip, with about 4-6 LEDs on each... I found changing the bulbs only gave out poor light, hardly illuminated the bottom half, let alone the temperature and petrol gauges.

Hi!

just a few pics of my new LED light conversion inside.

almost completed now, just have boot, foot wells and rear foot wells to do now.

Excuse the dodgy pics the camera wouldn pic up the blue very weel, its almost like ultra violet.

Would like some help on how to change all the different dials and lights to other colours aswell please!
That looks good mate :thumbup:. How have you wired all the LED's up. Like Crezz says get rid of the rest of the orange off the clocks.

It must depend on the bulbs, Ive changed mine from orange to red and mine light up the dials rather well, better than the orange IMO.

i fitted them by removing the two existing bulbs, pulling the red strip out, sliding the leds through the holes (had to trim mine as were to long) and once inplace, soldering the wires to the positive and negative strips, simples;)

The clocks should come out through the steering wheel, I had my standard steering wheel on when I changed my bulbs and got them through the steering wheel.

I have a light in my boot but its a boot light from a Gti. Works rather well. Although I am planning on building abit of a boot build.

How did you wire up the one in the centre console and footwells??

David, I've fiddled with clocks / units many times on my old Ibiza :)... Basically, carefully unscrew the two screws (which I'm assuming you've already done), and slide it forward on it's resting pivots. Disconnect the connector to the rear of the unit so you've got a little more play.

Now for the tricky part, leave it on one of the pivots and get it out at an angle, sideways... it should come out. Be careful not to scuff the dash cutout too much, or tear the dash plastic / facing. Finally pull it through the steering wheel as Craig states. You'll get it out, with care, I did :)
