Blue clock

Postby Spudicus on Tue Sep 20, 2016 11:08 pm

Hi all,
When I purchased my Frontera the clock was not working. I ordered some LED replacement bulbs, hey presto, I now have a working clock and temp display in blue. Quick question, are the bulbs to fit the dash lighting the same as I fitted to the clock display?? I think I need blue dash lights. :lol:

Quick answer to your question is, no they are different the ones for the dash are bigger than the clock ones.

Your dash will look like mine.

That looks awesome! I need to get my instrument display done in blue. Do you have the size code to hand for the LED's?

The bulbs are 501 (t10) sidelight bulbs × 4, there is a write up on how to remove the dash somewhere on here and it takes about half an hour :D

The multi display is easy. Just undo the screw's that hold the surround then 2 screw's for the multi display and the bulbs just twist out.
