Default HVAC Bulbs....

Photobucket appears to have killed all the threads on this looking to convert my HVAC controls to blue on a 2003 STI.

Can anyone shed some light of what I need to replace these with please....?




There's 4 of them mounted across the PCB (not interested in swapping out the LED's, just the 4 bulbs)




Cheers

You replace the actual bulb rather than its holder, using something like this

or change to an LED equivalent.

I am back...

I had to tear the original bulb out of the holder & it was just wired in to the base of the holder:



I am guessing this is just a case of replacing these with blue LEDís & wrapping the wires round the holders as the T5ís I have are the wedge type & no way to push fit them in?

Thanks

*Edit: And if just swapping with a standard LED are they all universal or does it need to be a specific wattage or something
