    Ive tried searching with no success, What LED's would one use to do the LED swap in my gauge.
    Also would anyone know what LEDs you would use to swap the color in the steering controls?

    Ive already done my 06 xrunner so its nothing new, Im just not sure what LEDs to buy for the newer gauges.

    Thanks!

    i would imagine still PLCC-2s. steering wheels have always been PLCC-2 from my understanding. if you have already done your 07, why not just crack open the '13, should take you less than 30 minutes. take a pic and post up here for reference for others.

    Ill add the pics after, I will be taking out my gauges this weekend, Steering controls ive taken out and they are TINY! Im not sure what LED's they are (there is also 2 amber on the A/C controls for the a/c and recirc buttons) The other 5 on the a/c controls are plcc-2

    If anyone can tell what kind of LED's these are.. it would be appreciated! [wait for pic] SMD 1206? SMD 0402?

    sorry, just saw this. hard to tell from the pic. i would measure them, then compare to the measurements on the oznium site. they give the eng drawings of each led.

    The PLCC-2's will work, but it's not easy due to their larger size. Also, you basically solder them upside down, since the light projects out the bottom of the board your showing in the pic, and the PLCC-2 contact points sit higher above the board due to that orientation. Mine's working great, but we'll see how it holds up.

    Man, I wish I could have found that steering control info 2 weeks ago. Thanks for posting it.
