i personnally use www.crazyleds.co.uk and they are very very cheap. pointed tip will work, you will also need a pair of tweezers as they are minute, if you feel you cant do it i offer my services. yeah i was in the same shoes as you are, but i left it black to go with the interior.
Thanks for the offer John, I just might take you up on that. ref the white dials I have had an email back off lockwoods, this is what they said ;
The glow plug warning light will be inactive on petrol engine models but the symbol was on the original so we kept it on ours. If the dials look the same as yours (apart from the colour) then these will be fine. Hope this helps. Kind Regards Clive Lockwood Int.
so It looks like they are fine, I might just purchase a set, catch you later...
Hi again, I bought a soldering iron about six years ago from Maplins it is a ANTEX M12 12w with a very fine tip, I have tried to upload a photo but failed, ah well, Can you tell me where to get the SMD LEDs from and a rough cost for them please?
Another thing, I have tried to get a set of white dial faces for the car but everyone is telling me that they dont do one for the diesel, I have just emailed Lockwoods as in there ad on their site it says petrol but on the photo it shows the glow plug heater indicator, I will just have to wait for an answer off them I suppose. catch you later...
Ps, as for changing the lights in the dash cluster forget it!! I took it all apart and looked at what it would involve, all I can say is that you must have the patience of a saint, Hey up it's Saint John..
