    Just gathering the same info for myself to start the job. The right angle one's mentioned seem to be in the dash clocks. I'm thinking ordering the dash kit from here should cover all https://www.crazyleds.co.uk/Vectra-C-02-08/

    I'm still tryin gto find the one that goes in the alarm light with the resistor fitted. The how-to on this site is long but well worth the read.

    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default

    Instead of using the right angled ones in the clocks, just use PLCC2's and stand them on their side, very easy to do and what most people do when they do conversions.

    As for quantities, this is what I used for mine, but bear in mind it's a prefacelift and may have different parts and switches to yours. The thread I created when I did mine which has several pics in it is here if it helps http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=158126

    Heater control panel
    9 x white plcc2
    5 x blue plcc2 (four switch indicators and behind the blue semi circle on the temperature dial, there was one already here but it's never worked on mine, does now).
    There's a red one already in situ behind the red semi circle that I didn't replace.

    Rear door electric window switches
    1 x white plcc2 in each

    Passenger door switch
    4 x white plcc2

    Drivers door switch
    13 x white plcc2
    1 x blue plcc2 (for the rear windows locked button when activated)

    GID
    This is fitted with plcc4's by default, I replaced these with 0603's on Kmans advice.
    36 x blue 0603

    Front heated seat switches
    1 x white plcc2 in each switch
    1 x blue plcc2 in each switch

    Park pilot and Sport switches
    1 x white 3mm diffused in each switch
    1 x blue 3mm diffused in each switch

    Traction control and Alarm switches
    1 x white 3mm diffused in each switch

    Steering wheel controls (half can, three button type)
    3 x white 3mm diffused in each switch panel (one per button)

    Headlight switch
    11 x white plcc2

    Rear heated seat switches
    1 x white 3mm diffused in each switch
    1 x blue 3mm diffused in each switch

    Twin audio panel
    9 x white plcc2

    Overhead light switches
    1 x 3mm white diffused in each switch

    Sunroof switch
    5 x white 0603 (there's actually 8 but you cant get to the inner three without breaking the switch)

    Interior mirror downlight
    1 x blue 5mm diffused (I actually used 2 x 3mm ones next to each other as I hadn't bought any 5mm ones)

    Ashtray
    1 x blue 3mm diffused

    Dashboard
    14 x white plcc2 (mounted on their sides to replace original side mounted LEDs)
    4 x blue plcc2 for right hand LCD (in speedo)
    3 x blue 0603 for left hand LCD (in rev counter)

    Powered bootlid button (in bootlid)
    1 x 3mm white diffused

    What are the 14 white leds used for in the dash? Are they not all the same colour?

    Just ordered all my LED's today for interior and exterior. Ordered 20 blue right angled for the dash from Crazy LED's

    3mm with resistor for alarm

    3mm LED for steering wheel and overhead

    Ordered 200 of these as they are cheap and to make sure I have enough incase I cook some
    PLCC2

    25 of these for the dash (again incase of cooking)
    90 degree led's
