    Is it possible to change the bulb/LED in the sunvisor?

    I'm after some black VXR/SRi sunvisors to butcher and fit the mirrors into some mk4 visors that will be trimmed to match the seats.

    But is it possible to change the bulb or LED in the illuminated one to make it ice white instead of a normal yellowy bulb colour?

    Thanks

    I have apart from my heater controls which almost sorted, but i thought whilst i was gutting the visors i might aswell look into it

    I don't have them yet so i don't know whether they can be split apart
