In a earlier post we already got the middle part of the dashboard with blue light but now someone (French forum) got it all blue and I must say it looks pretty cool.

    The 107 owners club forum have a how-to for the centre console (www.107oc.com) but not the back of the speedo

    i've had a look inside the speedo but it's a bit beyond me.

    The LED's are on the circuit board behind the dial and some white plastic thing that directs their light. Replacements would need to be soldered onto the circuit board.

    But getting access to the board is tricky, the white plastic bit seems impossible to remove. i've looked around the back but, having not removed the entire unit from the car, can't see much...

    any pointers or advice would be great (or if someone knows how to get the white thing off...)
    Thanks

    All you need is a free swatch book from rosco. It is free. Just cut a small piece of the plastic, which is available in over 50 colors, and glue it to the led or in front of the white thing like you say and there you have whatever color you want. You can get the rosco swatch book for free (1.5'' by 3.5''), just google it, or you can get a bigger size if you need it on ebay under rosco.

    are the leds/lights strong enough?

    I doubt it, thinking about it - especially as it's trying to get orange light through a blue filter.

    Whoever posted the original bit saying rosco filters would work must've been lying - though I don't know why :/

    I have blue leds wit the original filter (brownish) over them as they are too bright on their own. Works perfectly. Check the how to section for my pictures (scroll down a bit) I used bleu bulbs first but they where almost green, the leds are perfect with the filter over them.

    I still found them too bright for night driving - the unfortunate thing is, you can't really have the blue look in the day without ruining your night-sight at night...

    jakobb, is the led in the middle of the speedo also to be exchanged? this one is responsible for the color of the needle, isnt it?

    cheers, dan

    has anybody an idea? guido?

    i am going to change the leds tomorrow.

    cheers, dan
    Jakobb said...
    Yes the center diode is the one that lit up the needle.
    I replaced the center diode with a red one, because I knew from seeing the VW's that it looks awesome.

    any possibility of part numbers, brands, and product titles for the LEDS (blue and red) that go into the rev counter and speedo? anyone have pictures of the rev counter taken apart?
    hossen77 said...
    Hello - I changed the bulbs but now the dashboard doesn't light up at all, even when I put the old bulbs back in - and the speedo also doesn't light up when the headlights are on. Are these lights connected? Also might it be a fuse issue? Do you know where the fuses are? Any help would be gratefully received. Thanks.
    Guido said...
    Yes that's a fuse. You can find the fuses under the cover of the speedo.
    There are 2 screws behind your stearing wheel, unscrew those then move the cover up and towards you.
