not sure , i think they are very small ones, probably better off trying to take one out and look at it. Are they all gone or you just want to change the colour of them?

Only 1 half of my speedo was lighting when I got it, took it apart, I taught I had the bulbs for it but I didnt so I had go ones locally in a filling station white 501 park bulbs, but it was s@3! light at night time, so I had to but back in yellow ones, orange is what came out, theres 3 of them there 501 park bulbs....I was going 2 change the rest when I had them out but the local motor factors didnt have because you have to get holder & bulb. And if the centre console is anything like my old car no thanks wouldnt touch it it broke my heart with heater cables..not sure what the tezza like

different colour bulbs wont illuminate the panels for you the same as the standard ones. you will have to go down the LED route if you want to change the colours and keep the spread of light even, tried it on my speedo cluster turned out crap, bright patches on the rev counter and you couldnt see the rest. Been there tried them all, its not worth the hassle of taking things apart and soldering led bulbs into the boards.

These dont need to be soldered!!!


ya heard bad stuff bout that kit alrite. the dash bulbs are a standard size so its easy to get very good led replacement ones for them. its the one in the heater controllers that are going to be a bit of a prob

problem is with the leds is the spread of light they give off. if you don't find the right ones you will be left with dark patches on your speedo cluster. I only know a few people that did it and they all went through a few speedo clusters and aircon controls before they got it right. the amount of money i wasted on them is crazy. leave it as is or spend a load of money trying different bulbs with different angles of light dispersion etc. If you want your lights blue you will have to do the all Richie as having just the cluster blue will look stupid
