Thanks Trunk_Monkey for the write-up on all of these.
How did you do the HVAC one???
I tried doing the HVAC today and discovered that the back of the HVAC looks totally different then what is pictured here. Also, instead of there been 2 bulbs there are actually 4 of them and the worst part is that they are smaller so the .2 bulb covers do not fit. The bulbs were smaller then the ones found on the OEM turbo gauge or the key hole ring. Each individual bulb sits in a plastic holder which in turn screws into the HVAC. When I tried to slip .2 covers over the bulb and on top of the plastic holder the covers stayed on but the bulb would not fit into the mounting hole in the HVAC. So basically I had to put everything back together the way it was and call it a day.
Anyone else have that problem on 04? I guess I might have to get the .12 bulb covers instead and try my luck with those.
