  • Are you sure those burned out? My top 74s went out because the bulbs were too big for the sockets, and the pressure of the now-widened sockets broke the PCB.

    • That's what I am assuming, i replaced them with a different 74 and it is working fine although the two 74s on the top have slight differences in color tone.

      • hey lithium keep us updated as i plan on doing the swap when it gets warm but if the your 74s above the cluster go out again i might just stick to OEM filament bulbs

        • Heres mine, had to modify 2 of the bulbs to make color even as i could.
          Blacklight above with blue strip removed and foil to scatter the light good.

          • So here is an update, the 74s ontop or the rest of the bulbs for that matter are fine. I have had problems with the 2 T1.5 leds though. I replaced them twice now and one side is on/off now again. So yeah im not sure whats going on but i think im done with leds or i just wont drive at night lol.

            • I used T1.5s on the top because the 74s from superbrightleds will not fit in the stock base all the way. I had to trim the holes for it a little and it is a bit of a tight fit, but it does work.

              You people need to make sure your bulbs go all the way down in the base. Being loose is what will cause them to flicker in and out. You SHOULD NOT use 74's in place of 24's. They are too small and fit too loose. This will eventually cause the above mentioned problem again.

              Now as far as keeping the color even.

              You need to make sure you get your 194s and 24s in the same color temperature. At first I bought 194s that were 6000k and 24's that were 5700k. This caused the 194s to be too bright and color uneven. So I bought 2 more 24s and swapped the bulb bottoms with the 194's bulb bottom. This now makes my color correct and my light even.

                hey, sorry im new to this forum, still learning everyrthing... ha.

                • It shows you how to do it in the manual. You need to pull the speedometer cable out the transmission and feed it slack to the gauge cluster to be able to pull it out and take it off.

                    • Be careful not to pull on the speedometer cable to hard. I did and cracked the back of the speedometer housing and ruined it.
                      Also this is a good time to re grease the inside of the cable. Dont do it with it attached to the cluster. You will get grease in the speedometer.
