    Speedo LEDs (Mk4 GSI)

    Hey, just changed the bulbs in my speedo as one of the bulbs had gone, so thought I may as well get some white LEDs.

    They don't seem to light up the speedo half as well as bulbs do. Obviously they are brighter but now there's just patches of lights over the speedo (mainly dull around the right hand side of the revometer and left hand side of the speedometer)

    Is this just the nature of LEDs or is one of them not working?

    Check that you have mounted them the right way. Turn them half a turn and try again.

    you have put them in the correct way

    they are just making hot spots

    if you can i would reccomend maybe sanding down the top of the LEDs to try and spead out more light
