Your right scoop, they just sweep through themselves.

They are direct replcements, remove the old bulbs from their holders and drop in the led ones.
As you can see from this topic, you may have to play about with the metal contacts on the bulbs to get them to work...

Sounds a bit off putting having your dash sweep different colours, looks good though although i would prefer to change coour manualy :))

I kinda thought that too but its not as bad as you think, it sweeps through the colours and not straight from one to the other

Does look better when you see it for yourself

Since you were so nice to me in my cosmetic post and your wrong!!! I asked about interior bulb NOT about these ones!!!

I just needed 2 led bulbs for the instrument cluster check www.ultraleds.co.uk for the bright blue bulbs.

These are the same as mine except their blue and you'll more than likely have to play about with the metal connectors.

As for the fuse, give me 30 mins and I'll let you know which one it was(Was a 10amp one that am sure of now)

The fuse that kept blowing was number (3) which is a 10 amp fuse.

1.Yes they do come with the housing..You might have to play about to get it to fit the time clock (Just what I hearded and not done it myself)

Those ones will not fit the instrument console, as they are to small..You will need the 286 slim wedged ones.
Replace old bulb for new (In the orig holders, just need to pull out old bulbs from their holders)
