  • change speedo led's

    www.crazyleds.co.uk

    i bought the kit from this guy through his e-bay shop and it included very clear instructions with pics of all the stages. he has also been very helpful and good communication.

    you will need a soldering iron with a fairly fine nib, tweezers, phillips screw driver, torx T10 and patience!

    i didnt take any useful pictures while i did mine but i can explain fairly clearly how to do it if somebody wants as it isnt that hard to do.

    http://www.vxronline.co.uk/messagebo...pic.php?t=2745 click for pics of mine. could also be green, red or any other colour that you can get the led's in.

    i am going to be changing the rest of the interior lights to match and will take pics for a proper how to on that but it will take a while.

                this fella is top man and not so dear, its a bit of a job but as long as you can use an iron youl be fine. just orded blue set for the oil burner £55, you will need 6 normal leds 4 for the over head int lights ans alarm censors, the alarm one is bult in to the switch so need stripping down,2 for the door catch lights ,you will need 100 pc2 smds 3 pc4 smds 20 1206 smds and 10 0805 smds. Be very very carefull with the speed unit as it need to be stripped right down and the small screen is very very friagile, also the car will not start with the speedos out. if you pm me i will give you my no them you can ring me if you like.

                        This could spell trouble just had the cdc30 mp3 out of my 07 astra and its not the same as the one in the vxr, vxl have changed suppliers and the smds on the new one are not anything like the old ones, thay are on the back of the motherboard and have hole for the light to come through, i have not come across this type before and im not too sure about getting them off, will need to have it apart again when i have a bit more time. looking at a cdc 40 next week on a 4 week old zaf so will keep you posted. ps the new cdc30 mp3 as 9 radio pre sets the old as 6.
