    interior LED lights

    Hi all!
    I'm thinking about putting some led bulbs for the heater dials and speed dials

    Just wondering for the centre console bit is it easy to take that apart to get to the bulbs?? I've done a search, and is it bassically the same steps as the "How to" on removing centre console??

    Any of the direct replacement bulbs are easy enough to get to if tyou have any degree of skill with a screwdriver.

    Just be aware that for the MFD you might need to swap the internal diffuser from an orange one to a transparent white one, and the speedo mileage display might need the orange diffuser removed.

    The heater dials don't light well at all with LEDs as they just don't light the internal prism well enough, plus the newer MK4s have a fixed orange diffuser on the heater dial fascia which will make any LED colour but red show funny. They can work and there are differing methods of sorting the dim light from the LEDs.
