    Default auto dimming mirror - light mod??

    Has anyone changed the horrible orange light that shines down from the rear of the auto dimming mirror - is it easy/possible to do and if so what type of bulb is it?

    Sorry buddy, I have never seen it done but if the bulb could be changed for a red light etc it would be cool. As with everything though it'll come apart but will it go back together again?

    its the cost of a new mirror if it gets damaged. They are very expensive brand new, although there are a few second hand ones every now and then.
