    What bulbs? I didnt get a write up buddy i just took the cluster unit out then looked in ebay for the parts i needed. If ur car is the same as mine you will need 3x 501 bulbs for the dials. 2x 509 bulbs for the indicators then the roof bulb is a festoon bulb just take it out measure it then order the size you need. I went with led parts for my car because 1 there brighter and 2 they dont loose there colour where the painted bulbs tend to loose there paint and turn a funny colour after a while. Iv got roof lights front and back, footwell lights and my dials all blue, the indicator arrows red and the rest is the standard orange colour. Iv got some disco bulbs that i may try sometime just for a change.

    Oh yeah just a hint if you have never taken your dials apart before you will need to do this and get rid of the orange glur stuff on the back of the dials once you done this what ever colour bulb you decide to go for will shine through that colour but till then you will get a brown colour cuz it will be green bulb with orange glue if that makes sense. The glue is easy enough to get off tho takes about 45 mins once you got the dials out and all you need is some cotton wall balls and some nail varnish remover, Just dont get the nail varnish remover on the face of the dials because it will fade the black face of the dials if your not careful

    Ok cheers mate yeah didnt think about nail varnish remover, and will thinners not melt the plastic? When i had my astra i tried painting the centre console and that didnt go to plan so tried getting it off with thinners and it just started melting i will try the nail varnish remover then the sticky stuff remover if the nail varnish remover trick dont work.
