    Default Facelift steering wheel leds

    Hi everyone, thinking about doing an interior led conversion and found the leds for the most part, except someone said the leds for the steering wheel controls aren't the 0805's but smaller?

    Anyone got any ideas
    thanks

    The facelift steering controls are a nightmare. The LED's are TINY. So small my tweesers would not pick them up.

    I used blue tack on the end a small tack to pick them up and positioned them under a a magnifiying glass. Then all it took was a touch of solder each side to secure them....
