What bulbs go here, I have some but they don't seem to fit SO if anyone can get me a link or the name of the specific bulb then I would appreciate that very much :)

I believe the bulbs are the same ones used in the fog buttons, they arent LEDs and are infact just tiny bulbs. If you search you "should" get the bulb type/number.

EDIT: Mwhahahaah 1000th post!

I just bought a pile of blue LEDs to change over all the bulbs this weekend.
I read somewhere on here that they are the same as the small bulbs in the dash?

I hope I'm right cos I was all set to do it this weekend.

you may need to solder on a resistor for the led's, wait for confirmation though.

I don't solder. If it ain't a screw, a bolt or a block connector then I don't touch it as a rule.

Damn! Was hoping it was just bulb out LED in.

the speedo's are LED's and work fine ... the two heater dial LED's don't fit in unfortunately, might just leave it till I have the dash of next and just put some strips inside the unti, should work ok

That was never going to happen really was it :b

You're gonna have to solder something in there, if it's to remove SMD LEDs from the dash and solder new ones in (if gen 2s have SMDs in the dash) or taking out bulbs and soldering in an LED and resistor

so what size/type of LEDs are they? is there a way of just replacing them?

I bought a 10pack of wide angle 286s because I was under the impression they would work.

So I'm gonna have 8 leftover that dont fit anywhere?

Ha. Its never easy is it. The Dial Bulbs can just be replaced though can't they? without any botching?

If you had a Gen 3 I could tell you all about it. But you don't, so I can't. Got no clue on Gen 2 dash personally

du mean for the speedo?

I haven't got a clue which LED's am usin because Chapp ordered me sone when he bough his own, come to think of it, I'm sure he said something about having to glue the bulbs in place because they are a bit loose, hmmmmm, might have get dash out again tomorrow then lol! That would fix the two cig lighter LED's

(I only know about the 286 as I googled em lol!)

Gen 1's is 4x 501 and x2 286 for the speedo , rev etc. The heater dials, cig lighter use 286 also. The rest of the switches ie fog window rear demister all require leds to be soldered in with resistors. Pretty sure this should be the same for gen 2. Here is a DIY Guide its for a ge one but same sort of principle, just the - and + could be other way round.

Heres the back of a gen1 instrument cluster. Gen2 should be pretty identical.

Also a little tease of my dash, so you can see what can be achieved with a bag of 100 Leds and loads of spare time.
