    DIY: EG Civic Gauge lights change and Climate Control

    Disclaimer: The following is provided as a GUIDE ONLY, and neither myself nor Ozhonda take any responsibility for the outcomes of someone else doing the following. You follow these steps at your own risk!

    PART 1
    Aim: To make your Eg Interior Gauge Lights "RED" or any other colour you want.

    Required: A few different Screwdrivers, New lights (5 #24s and 4 #74s), Red acrylic paint and panadol because you will get a headache some of the stuff can get very annoying

    Steps:

    First of, we will do the gauge cluster lights.
    Take out the to screws (IN RED) above the cluster.


    Then pull out the hazards switch and unplug it (IN BLUE) then the hidden screw (IN RED) once you have taken the screw out you will have to pull the black cover off, its held in by clips. best was it to wedge some screw drives between it and the dash and give it a good few pulls. once you have that out remeber to unplug the clock (IN BLUE)


    Now when you have the black cover out you can take out the screws that hold the cluster in (IN RED) behind it there should be 2 plugs


    Once you have taken the cluster out is should look something like this


    At the back of the cluster, there will be brown holders (IN GREEN) that hold the bulbs in them. there should be 1 #74 and 5 #24s


    When you un screw them then will look like this


    Now pull them out of the brown holder, also in this picture is a pack of the lights. they only come in packs of 2


    Ok so what i did to change the colour is get acrylic paint and paint over the new bulbs, but you can buy amber socks that roll over the bulbs or you could use LEDs. here is a picture with a painted light and a non painted light.


    Before you put your dash back together, make sure everything works! now just reverse the steps and put it back together.

    PART 2
    Steps:

    Now to the the climate control.
    Start by taking the screws out (IN RED) 2 on the top and 2 on the side


    Fold it forward and it will look like this, Make sure you take out the cigy lighter plug (IN BLUE) also there is a blub in the ash tray that you can colour (IN GREEN)


    Now take your stereo out, ok so now you will have to get the 2 screws out the are facing out toward the camera (IN RED) these are a pain. then there should be a screw at the back


    Once you have them out. you now have to unplug the climate control. easy way to do it is unplug the plugs (IN BLUE) then pull it all out : before you can pull it out you have to unhook the temp changer wire. its underneath you wont miss it, mine was blue



    Now that you have it out it will look like this


    (flip it over) What you have to do now is take the screws out (IN RED) and all the other fidly bits ive marked in red. you will figure it out it not that hard



    Now when you pull it off it will look like this


    Once you pull the lights (IN GREEN) out and swap them out it will look like this


    Now put it all back together. and should look like this

    i dont think i have missed anything, let me know if i have

    you can buy red LEDs or whatever colour you want, they wont dim fast. dont use the old bulbs because they are to dull. but im guessing its going to be a fair few years before they start to dim
