2003 Dash lights

My dash lights have gone out (like alot of others on here) and I was looking for a thread that shows how to get the dash out to replace the lights. I saw a couple with the dash already out, but nothing on the how to. If it's self explanatory, feel free to tell me so...I just kinda like to know what I'm up against before I start a project! Thanks, Greg

Thanks Tyler! Can't believe I just now found this forum! That article is exactly what I needed! I'm gonna be sure and check all the fuses but I want to change the light color anyway, so that link will come in handy! Thanks again!

Where do you buy your leds from? And if I wanted to make mine white all I would have to do is put in white 360 leds and it'd be white?

yea superbrightleds.com BUT your stock lights have an orange "condom" on them creating the amber light. You might wanna just take that off (its super easy) and see if the resulting light is white enough for ya.. if not get the LEDS

thanks, no because the reason they are amber is from a film on the panel itself, not the bulb IMO. you can remove the film, but I tried that and it was a dissaster lol

How many lights does it take for the instrunment cluster and how many for the climate control panel? I want to make sure I have enough before I take it apart!
