VERY helpful, I was actually toying with the idea of replacing exterior lights too.. however I was asking the more physical question of how to get the instrument panel off so I can get to the lights back there icon_razz.gif As well as if there are any surprises.

And to clarify, instrument panel = fuel guage, spedometer, RPM guage, check engine light, all that jazz

Are The cluster bulbs ... THe LL are Long life the LED's will outlast those ...
I don't have the vehicle so no idea on disassembly normal is screws to remove the bezel around the cluster then screws to remove the cluster then disconnect wire harness to remove cluster ... Most bulbs are twist in /out to replace

Gotcha, thank you kindly! And Im assuming as far as exterior lights go its not legal for any color other than standard. Though I do see blue-tinted lights on personal cars every so often as they drive around..
