[DML] Re: replacing console lights with LEDs

>From an earlier posting.  Chris
Here you go:


I've done the door light conversion kit and the A/C
console kit.  Cost you about $25-$28 with shipping for
all that.  Got my lights in 3-4 days flat.  Door
lights took about 5-10 mins - A/C console took maybe
at most 25-30 mins because I took it slow.  I followed
the exact same link you mentioned - excellent site I

For the doors, have a flathead screwdriver with you. 
Take the lens out, than use the screwdriver to softly
pry at the sides of the rubber sockets.  It's much
easier to do with the rubber sockets loose and hanging
out of the doors.  Of course have your battery
unhooked so the bulbs don't get hot as you try to take
them out.  You'll need 4 amber leds and 2 red leds for

For the A/C console, follow Jordan's "how to", then
just softly push in a little and turn to get the bulbs
out.  Then do the same to insert new bulb.  You'll
need 7 leds for this.

I have not done any of the other conversion kits yet. 
Maybe someone else here can comment on that, but I
definitely look at doing them soon.  When you see the
leds and how good they look, you'll never go back to
ordinary bulbs again.  More light and less power =
less strain on your electrical system = happy
