    Question on lights and dash clocks

    Hi guys and gals im looking to see if any one knows if it is possible to take the dash clocks apart so i can remove the chrome rings and is it possible to remove the lense from the head light so i can take away the chrome surround. If it is has anyone got pics on this so i could take a look at. Cheers gareth

    Yes it is and yes they are. Someone else did it to his cluster so I had a go too - I missed the red/blue from my VW. £3 for the led's from eBay and about 1-2hrs of my time!

    Here's a link to the thread by the guy who did it first... Dial colour change.. HOW TO!

    Can't quite remember as it was a few years ago now, but I expect I used some black silicone sealant, like the stuff you squirt of of a tube when you're grouting... but black in colour, not white! Left it tied up like that for about 4hours in my warm kitchen.
