Funny mine went out as well, on the left side dash nest to temp gauge, anyone know how to get to that because once I am in there I might as well change them all. Let me know.

cool it does help. I could do this no problem. Hope I can switch from the standard yellow to a emerald green. Quick question? Can you get about nay color bulb you want and is it a standard bulb for all cars.

what I can see is the bulb are just standard white. and the colour comes from the film on the cluster. so there isn't too much you can do... but come to think of it, if you wanted to you can wrap the bulb in some jelly film and some color may show through.. worth a try, I might do the same since I have to take it apart again and find out where my loose connection is

I think ebay has different color led bulbs that will fit. I thought I saw them on the uk site.
