For all those needing to replace dash (Tacho) board lights. Speedo lights.

Tools required are

Phillips head screw driver.
Bulb (9001006038) - Orange type. T10 bulb with a orange sheafing.

There are 5 screws holding the plastic dash board down.

2 right at the bottom, 1 in the middle, 2 where the taco is.

3 screws holding down the taco down. 1 on the top, 2 underneath the taco.

Back of the board.

to replace just twist the black backing of the bulbs and they pop right out.

when replacing i tried using just the normal T10 wedge bulbs
you can see a slight difference from 0km - 120km as seen in the pic.

fixed and all back to normal.

nah, looks arse if you just use colored condoms over your bulbs...

The blue comes out kinda greeny, use colored LED's if you can get them to fit.

nah easy as to do, i put full blue led set up in my dash, only problem being the light distribution was average because leds only emit light forwards but only took about 15mins to do the lot

WTF.

Bought 3 of http://ledbulbs.co.nz/product_info.php/products_id/99. Didn't fit in the ignition ring light part & fitted in the other lights but they didn't stay in/clip in? & bought 3 of http://ledbulbs.co.nz/product_info.php/cPa.../products_id/93 which fitted in the holder part but wouldn't fit in to the actual dash... :S
