The LEDs were $50-$60 altogether. What do you need to solder? I guess I should try to show more of that, but it's kinda difficult to take a pic while doing it. There are contacts on the sides of the LEDs that need to be soldered to the PC board. You can see on this pic where they are soldered to the board on the ends of the LEDs.

Great write up man. Once you get the write up/pics done for every location you should talk to a MOD and make a new thread that just has your posts in them and have it stickied

I should be finishing up the dash, Homelink, and AC controls tonight. Stay tuned....

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
http://www.dav-electronics.com/DAVCa...products_id=91

(10) 2.2mm x 1.4mm SMD LEDs
http://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/...M19Op4WA%3d%3d

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.

PRND








Don't forget that LEDs must have the polarity correct to work, so you may want to check this first before re-assembly.

This pretty much wraps up the center stack controls and the lower console. Time to admire your handy-work!

just awsome !! great write up and instruction !!

better you than me brother -- this mod just seems to difficult for the average person .

you must have unbelievable patience and steady hands to be messing with those small LED's and circuit boards .

I would be breaking tabs , loosing those small screws and starting a fire , before I even got to the LED's , never the less actually replaceing the LED's..

this will be one mod I will not attempt .
