    Khufu has changed his climate LEDs for white ones. You can change the cluster for a White one if you have red. Not sure about the rest

    He has, but not all of them as yet, cluster wise they're smd's not bulbs so at your own risk as the cluster is also your immo.

    I pm'd you the only pics I have Nate.

    This is the ones I used:

    20 x ULTRA BRIGHT WHITE PLCC-2 SMD LEDs SMT LED PLCC2 on eBay (end time 14-Nov-10 16:39:37 GMT)


    All you need is a steady hand & a narrow tipped solder iron! TBH, mine all work fine but no points for "penmanship" LOL

    I was only brave enough to do the climate, the RNS-E is a bit more costly to bugger up though i still plan to get round to windows swiches etc

    I thought you changed the screen to white, not the button colour

    The Screen requires a different 4 pin LED - I struggled to do the 2 pin ones Would need a better tip on solder & magnifying glass LOL.

    I think Nigel had a link to those types of LEDs
