    Hi, im upgrading the bulbs from orange to blue in my switches.
    Managed to re-solder blue LED's in the window switches but can anyone tell me if and where i can find replacement bulbs for the OBC in blue?
    Have removed the old ones and the bulbs are actually soldered to the bulb holders :(
    No room to fit an led with resistor in there!
    Any suggestions or ideas where i can get these with blue bulbs?
    Or even if someone out there is doing this type of conversion regularly enough to have the bits i need to upgrade easily??

    Thanks
    Dave

    You can get led bulbs that are the same size just with an LED inside.

    How's that work as the OBC bulbs are clear aren't they? Therefor the colour comes from a tinted panel somewhere to it is likely blue LED and amber / red tint will give a funny colour.
