The needle is glue on. Warm up the glue a bit so you don't break the needle

You can get the polarized film from http://www.polarization.com/polarsho...products_id=31

They have other types of films too, but that's the super-high-contrast polarized film, which is what you want. You can select whether you want the film with or without adhesive. Some people here were recommending to get the one without adhesive and just kind of wedge it in behind the panels, but I'm lazy so I got the one with adhesive. I'll be putting it on this weekend, so if you want to wait until then I'll let you know how it goes and post up pics.

Finished my LED change and polarization. White tachometer and orange LCDs. Here's what it looks like:


Edit: The orange looks more brownish than that in person. I might swap the orange out for red and make the tach blue.

I'm having a hard time finding what to clean off the LED screen with before applying the polarization film. Anyone have any ideas?

Use Isopropanol (sometimes called Isopropyl alcohol). You can get it in the first aid section at any drug store. Just make sure it's the 99% concentration Isopropanol, because they're likely to have several different alcohol mixes there. The isopropanol evaporates at room temperature, so you can put as much of it on there as you want. It won't damage any of the electronics.

You can use a toothbrush or something similar to scrub the glue off, just make sure you use a new toothbrush. You want to clean the surface, not introduce new contaminants.

You can also check out my LCD blackout how-to video at the link below:

Thanks a lot, I actually just got done watching your video. I fried one of the blinkers so I'm back at the soldering

This seems to be a common thing that happens. That's why I decided to make a video for the LED change as well. It's a pretty simple mod when you get down to it, so I'm just mostly going to cover proper soldering techniques and the right tools to use. I should have it up by the end of the weekend.

Not a bad idea, I'm guessing I fried it but idk yet. I'll find out when I hook it back up again

If anyone is curious of what happened with the right blinker LED being out I'll explain that real quick. I first tested the circuit board and found that blinker to be not working. So I replaced it and went to test it again, still nothing. I realized that the left blinker LED had a delayed start up so I re-soldered that connection and used the same LED on the left and voila! Hope this will help in the future if someone runs into the same problem.

Thanks for the write up helped me out today. It was actually pretty easy to do. I now have a whole lot of these leds left over. I found a great deal on eBay for them I got 100 blue and 100 white for $7 bucks total.

You could probably sell off the LED's to other's in the forum and have free mod! :)

Dont remove the needle

follow the instructions from cbroman and desolder the whole thing from the back its way easier and you cant screw up the needle assembly that way.

plus, the assembly is out of the way to remove the leds from the tach location on the board.



here is mine i did last week:
red +white led + polarized

If you think...do! It IS essentially a computer board once you disassemble the cluster. If you're competent enough to take apart and put back a computer board in 5 minutes, then you should easily be able to read the instructions and change your cluster lights...it wasn't that bad.

^ there is no pins on the LEDs...they are surface mount.

melt the old solder, use tweezers while doing that to pull it off, line up new led and resolder.

super easy.
