    Clocks use surface mounted LED's so you would need to desolder them and solder on new ones... there was a thread on here from someone that did it... use the search to see if you can find it but expect to trawl through a few pages and/or refine your search words a few times before you find it... also use google as I think this has been done on Golfs...

    Soldering is pretty easy, just don't go mad with the solder - You don't need shed loads to get a good bond.
