    Default Anyone tried the Dash lights Mod

    Was browsing last night and seen a few articles about changing the yellow LED dash lights to blue?
    Wondering if anyone has done this and how easy it would be?

    Thumbs up

    Not easy.

    A load of the lads on http://www.astra-sri.co.uk/forums/index.php have been doing it to the Astra H's. A member called Darwin buys the LED,s and if you send him the relevant parts, door switches heater controls etc. Fits them for a small fee.

    Its a tough job to contemplate - even if your a wiz with the electronics.

    Would look good though!

    I had a VW Golf before and the dash looked fantastic, maybe I'm just dreaming, but it would look great in the Vec

    was going to get it done and my mate is a techy at vauxhall
    then he told me no dont do it

    he told he when they send any parts to vauxhall for warranty its sent back to them and it dosnt get better vauxhall will pull your warranty on your abs ,airbags and clocks,
    vauxhall have said they just cant warranty anybody work and clocks arnt cheap at about £1000 for clocks i dont blame them as it is if your led stop working the clocks are changed ,
    beside that he wants around £300 to do it anyway i asked

    id ask your dealer how he feels about you doing it maybe he is be ok about it
    ill look into it a bit more from vauxhall's side
