How in the world do I remove the dash to access the lights behind it? I've tried everything but the black plastic won't come off letting me access the gauge cluster behind it.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hi playsguitars,

You have removed all the attaching screws?

Pull hard, the clips for holding the cover are fitted tightly, lower end.

Hi,

thanks for the reply! I ended up breaking the right clip, but no worries, it came right out after that. Can't even tell. Another question:

where can I get some different coloured LED's to replace the burnt out ones? Are they all the same kind? I can't see at night!

Hi playsguitars,

If LED is used, they should all be the same, non LED will have big and small sizes.

You should be able to get them at auto parts shops. If you want different color, then you need to check out the electronic parts stores, make sure the voltage and wattage are correct.

LED seldom burnout so you should check for poor contacts.

I have gone to every auto parts store in my area, and noone seems to have the replacement stock bulbs. They all referred me to the dealer, which is why I decided to go aftermarket with this. I'm not into getting charged an arm and a leg for some light bulbs, haha. So it looks like i'll be going to www. Superbrightleds. Com for my lighting needs. Maybe pick up a couple goodies on the way. We'll see what happens! Thanks for all the help though guys.
