Hi

Im looking to change my dashboard lights from green to blue and ive got a couple of questions:

1) What kind of light bulbs will I need?
2) Will it change the colour of the temp/air controls/clock (in the centre console)?
3) Has anyone done this in the past got any recommendations/ suggestions where to get the bulbs from?

Thanks for the help!

Matt

I believe you'll find they're all soldered LED's.
There are people who provide the conversion service but probably not cheap.

if your handy with a soldering iron you could do it, as stoney said, with LED's, there are services on ebay, mainly for the instrument cluster to get this done, but I recall the price being approximately £100.00 give or take, as you have to send your cluster to them, then they play and send it back.

I did all the conversions myself, although I noticed yours is a mk1 Focus.
