    Angry Dash orange filter -> my white LED clocks turned out green

    I finally finished installing the white leds in the dials on my MK4, and an unpleasant surprise , the light was green !!! I guess it's that damn orange filter on the clocks ... i searched the forum up and down for info but nothing consistent ..

    Is there a way to remove this filter on the dials ??

    Regards,
    Ovi.

    HAHA. fair enough. I've got no idea on the filter though mate. Alot of people have problems with the filter in the MFD as well and then just use a clear bit of plastic as a new filter. I put red LED's into my MFD, so didn't get the filter problem.

    IIRC Oddjob took a set of clocks apart and found out about the orange filter, you can remove the OD meter one, but unfortantly the clocks have a orange filter layer formed in the middle, in other words no way to remove it. Only way around this is using another set of clocks from a astra without the filter.

    Follow the how to, i did and managed to remove the mileometer and MFD filters without a problem.
    Had to buy new dials tho, as my black dials had oraneg filters on the back of them that couldnt be removed.
