    Help, Instrument Cluster Light Colours

    When I pulled the centre cluster and removed the front plate, the little coloured squares fell out of the cluster and I don't know what colour goes where along the top row. The far left one did not fall out and it is green. I now have 1 blue, 1 green and 3 red squares. Does anyone know what colour goes where in the row? None of the pictures I took show them unfortunately. Thanks for any assistance. Even if you know some of them please let me know.

    I'm not near my car at the moment, but I do have a bad copy of the manual at hand. You can see the sequence of lights as "1." Hope this helps!

    Thanks Bernt, that helps a bit in that I will assume the right indicator light would be green as well (far right square). That leaves me 3 red and a blue. Does anyone know what illuminates the blue light? Maybe the main beams?

    Blue is for the lights.. I can take a picture for you this afternoon. Handbrake, choke, and charger warning light are all red I think, but going on memory here.

    green = turn signal / blue = high beam / handbrake, charging, choke = red

    Incidentally, I replaced my trouble-light bulbs with LEDs, which made them wonderfully bright.

    Which LED's did you use? I was thinking about it as the PO had installed LED's in the tail lights.

    Re: Help, Instrument Cluster Light Colours

    I tend to buy known brand LEDs, after disappointing forays into Chinese rip-offs. If I recall, they were Philips. I’d be comfortable with Osram, GE, and any of the other legit manufacturers. With LEDs, my experience is that you get what you pay for—and even the most expensive of those little bulbs are cheap. Be aware that the best light intensity with an LED comes from having a bulb that matches the colour of the lens. Thus a red lens brake light should have a red LED, not a white one. With the dash idiot lights it doesn’t matter (as far as I’m concerned), so all mine are white. My next upgrade is amber LEDs for the turn signals. Stand back.......!!!

    X2, are there some which will plug in directly to the original holders?
