When I took mine apart before, I didn't see any LEDs and was pretty confused. I'll have another go at it and post some photos.

What about your parking indicator? Why is it still Green?
Is there a way to make that blue as well?

haha, yeah, its still green because I mis-judged the amount of LEDs that I would need, I didnt have enough for either the gear indicators or the door indicator. I will be finishing the color change, but not till after christmas (everythings to hecktic :-) )

Ok after a few dumb mistakes and 3 packs of smokes later, heres my outcome of my gauge cluster led change! Keep in mind the stereo screen isnt that bright in person. Kudos to Mr.Vodka!

Update For LB Owners: This can be done on a LB

It wont be for a little while, but I will post a modified DIY, as the Cluster looks a little different when taking it apart.

Will keep you all updated.

NICE! Thank you, looking forward to reading your post. I have a Canadian Hatchback, and I want to change just the backlighting from the bright white light, to a nice blue, like that used in VWs!!

FROM THIS:



TO THIS:





(EDIT: I wonder if it'd be a problem if i DID NOT wannt to change as well the white lighting of the right-hand box part that holds the fuel bars, ODO and time? I'd like that left white as it is, but just change the lighting for the tach and speedo to blue!)
heheh and *maybe* the other warnings to red instead of the orange colour ;)

I dont think you'll have problem with doing the switch... yours may be a little diff when taking it apart (as there is a slight difference with the LB cluster versus the Sedan) but its all pretty straight forward.. just be sure to take your time

oh yah: dont make the mistake I did, be sure to take the cluster apart and count how many LEDs you will need and then add another 5 (in case of mistakes/loss) before you order the new LEDs or else you may end up with a 3/4 completed cluster like mine

haha, lifes been busy as all....

The liftback cluster can be changed.... chino tore his apart and took some pics. In-fact the lb cluster will be easier to change (as there are less LEDs to change out)

Yeah, then I spent the next month trying to get the speedo pin not to stick at 40 MPH. That cluster is a PITA.

I got my blue LED's today for the cluster and the stereo. I ordered 100 so hopefully i will have enough. I am going to have to beg my Dad to help me out with this one. This is his kind of thing though so hopefully I can get him into it. I'll post some pics of the L/B whenever I finally get it completed. I am wondering if there is a way to removed the greenish layer in the cluster. Looks like it is all one piece. I really wouldn't mind it staying white but I hate the green lines.
