Finished up some more tonight. Everything is done except for the overhead console and steering wheel controls. I'm going to try to do those tomorrow.

AC Controls, PRND, Tow mode, etc.

Tools needed:
#2 Philips Screwdriver
T20 Torx Screwdriver
Trim Tools

Parts Needed:
(1) LED-74

(10) 2.2mm x 1.4mm SMD LEDs

Getting to all of this stuff is the fun part.




Once you get to this point, all you have to do is pull up on the lower part of the center console cover and it'll snap right out.

Now we get to the center stack controls.






At this point, pull out on the lower left and right corners of the center bezel to remove it from the snaps. It may be very tight, but it will come out with a little persuasion. Pull all the way around to disengage all the snaps and just tilt it towards the shifter. This will give you access to the wiring harness plugs that you will have to remove in order to completely remove the center bezel. Sorry I don't have any pics of this part, but you should be able to easily see what I'm referring to once you get to that point. It's really pretty simple. Once you have it removed, lay it flat on a towel so as not to scratch the face, then follow these steps below.





Now, we're finally down to the switch modules.





Don't forget, I'm not changing out the amber on/off indicator LEDs. I'm leaving those alone. I prefer to have some contrast on the dash so I know when something is on or not. The LEDs for the knobs themselves are a total bitch to get to. You could remove the entire knob assembly, and risk breaking something, or you could just use a very steady hand and some skill, and replace the LEDs like it is. I'm glad I have steady hands!



This is the button row above the AC controls.
