Changing all instrument led color.

Does anyone know if there is an existing topic about changing the color of the climatronic led, windows buttons, steering wheel buttons, etc?

What specifically do you need to know? Led sizes and types? Everything needs to be disassembled down to the circuit board. I highly recommend a good rework station, third hand with magnifying glass, and some experience soldering small leds that are 1mm-3mm big

I need to know what type of LED i need for all instrument. I read around the web it will be needed smd 0806 and 3528. but i dont know the voltage. When i change the led of Start button i was remove the resistance to works. But i do not want to remove all resistances.

You need 4040 RA, 3528, 2214, 0805. 3.0v, 20mA

Is there a lot of difference between SMD 3528 and PLCC4 ?? My problem is the shade of white in the different instruments.

the only difference is you have 4 individual solder joints 3 positive 1 neg i think not sure at the moment ive seen some people online get away with using a 3528 in place of plcc3 by removing or covering the positive pad next to negative pad on the board....shade wise can only say frm my limited experienced that i noticed differed when mixing brands
my go to brand for smds is kingbright ordring through mouser.com
