I'm not really sure how to describe these lights... The ones that make the blue light appear on the speedometer and other gauges. I'm wondering if it is possible to take those bulbs out and replace them with a different color and get the same effect. If so, what is the bulb #? If this is too vague, let me know and I can try and explain in more detail.

These are the ones on the top of your cluster shining down onto the faces correct? If so they arent bulbs but are LEds. Each one has its one board and they look to be PLCC-2 leds. If you can solder then you can search for PLCC-2 on ebay and pick your color.

Those are the ones. Thanks man, I'm going with a red/white/black theme in my car and the blue just won't look all that great. You know of anyone that has done this? I am curious to see pics of different colors installed.

So what color are you replacing the blue with? Red or White?

Looking forward to seeing results!

Well I'm not sure yet, I saw a "How To" change the cluster gauge colors and I like how that looks, so Im thinking about doing that first and then going from there. Ive had my 08 Mazda for 1 year tomorrow and have just recently got into the modding of it. My friend just got a 03 Honda Accord and is making his nice and talked me into doing mine as well. We just put in new HID's and LED interior this weekend. :koolaid:

I had an extra cluster so I tried white out. It looked pretty stupid in my opinion.
