Instrument Illumination Light

Hi Guys

Does anyone know what bulbs / led types are in the dashboard for the illumination backlight?, I am planning on changing my colour backlight to green.
Have tried the internet but without any success.

Thanks
Griff

The European French are pretty handy at it... 10 pages here in a tutorial thread. Let me know if you need translation.

According to the service manual it is an LED and non replaceable

Illumination Light (LED)
•Connect the 12 V battery and terminals in the same manner
way as specified in the “Liquid Crystal Display (LCD)
Segments Check”.
○When the terminal are connected, the illumination light
(LED) should go on.
If the illumination light (LED) does not go on, replace the
meter assembly.

Haha. Well, they are only soldered on and can well all be replaced just like in the ER-6 tutorial thread.
