i also started looking at the dash, only interested in turing the turn signals from green to blue... looks 99% inpossible unless i want to unsolder this miniboard from the main circuit board, because the LED is right behind it

and also, took apart the radio again, this is my problem... the wires are to short, and when i put it back together i was having a hard time and must have forced it to much causing this one to come out intermediately... going to lengthen both wire sets by an inch to make it easy to take part and put back together

those LED'* are called SMT LED'*. yes they are VERY small and are a PITA to change out.

and you don't need a new connector for the radio. Merely a push in type connection there. Push the wire back in.

The tihing with those types are they are made to be pushed in..never pulled out.

I would probably label and cut the wires instead of messing with the connectors. Then simply solder and heat shrink back together.
