  • How To: Change The Bulbs Above Your Steering Wheel

    And now the continuation of http://forums.gtrcanada.com/showthread.php?t=23933. (How To: Change Your Climate Control Bulbs)

    How to change the bulbs above your steering wheel. Actually I didn't even know they lit up until someone told me.

    Again pardon all the blurry pics my camera is worth 50 bucks lol

    This time I used 2721092's from The Source (radio shack)
    http://www.thesourcecc.com/estore/pr...roduct=2721092. You get 2 bulbs per pack and they are the same price as the 2721154's I used last time. They are also 60mA instead of 50mA so I expect a slight bit more light. 12 bucks for all of them. Again Mine haven't blown up or hurt my car but use this at your own risk.



    First you will need to take your dash apart


    The switches are screwed to the inside of the cover



    Pics of all the stuff in a pile. Keep the bulbs separate because some are different lengths


    One of the bulb stands.
    like last time you will need to unwind the light leads from the rubber base. put the new ones and you will notice they are a bit shorter then the old ones. There is still plenty of contact point for the pins if you put them back in carefully.


    Tough to see but they all light up

    thats too funny! Slowly your car is getting all the "features" back that it would have had when new!

    So I guess all your switched up there light up now? Im running out of things that make my car better than yours! I still got twice as many doors as you though and a batwing!

                Buttons for the stock radio.

                There's also a light for the driver's window switch, and I think one for the passenger window on the driver side. There isn't one on the passenger door.

                Nice work Joker! I didn't think you could get those bulbs so easily.

                  Well they weren’t exactly super easy to get at cuz you have to take the dash apart but it was better than I expected.

                  The light for the hazards is in the back of the hazard switch. Your have to take it out to get at it. I got mine out with a knife. It's just a little rubber rectangle.

                            Anyone have done this mod recently??

                            On ebay, there's ton of PRE WIRED 3MM 12v-ready and I was wondering if I could fit these instead.

                              sorry to revive an old thread but just wanted to add that this CAN be done with pre wire 3mm 12v ready LED's, I did it yesterday and it turned out quite nicely. a little soldering is require on a couple of the switches but for the most part u can get away without soldering.
