    there are a few scattered threads about changing interior light colors to blue. it seems the different years are set up different for certain lights. i’m trying to gather more info on what i’d need to switch everything over to blue. this is excluding the radio and dash cluster (for now).

    hazard flasher button - t3 neo wedge led (confirmed works)

    aux, diff and lsd - t3 neo wedge led (confirmed works)

    climate dials - t4.2 neo wedge led (confirmed works)

    climate labels - yeah, what a pain. not today.

    a/c & circ - solder, 3mm 3v

    temp compass - built into lcd screen (boo)

    clock - plcc-2 leds (confirmed)

    airbags, etc right of clock - 5mm 3.7v

    driver window “auto” switch - solder

    steering wheel controls - plcc-2 leds (confirmed)

    shifter - custom led strips (confirmed)

    my clock has a clear window so i’m guessing the orange color is actually inside the clock lcd display. same with temp/compass.

    edit: there are diodes under the clock that can be changed out. no luck with the temp/compass.

    Did you upgrade/swap out your hvac dials? They look like ones you'd find on a 3rd Gen.
