    heyy heyy hows everyone doing today!
    so here is my question. i have a 02 tacoma. i already switched out the lights on the dashboard cluster to led blue. And now i would really like to see blue on the HVAC system. only i have no clue what size LED goes in there. and no one really seems to know. anyone out there does this swap before?

    I had to replace mine a few mths. ago the only place i could get them was from a dealership. They are a speclized bulb and you have to take apart the HVAC unit to access the board. They twist in from behind.
    Hope this helps. I dont know if you can change to leds though.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    You can change them to LED's it's a 74 bulb you just have to fish the wires in the little red mount. But you will need to replace the cover as well there is a orange film that can't be removed. The 02 4runner has the same cover and it's white.
