I've heard this mentioned before, but I couldnt find an answer.

When I put blue LEDs in my MFD and Dials, the left hand bulb in the centre console stopped working. Obviously I have loads of standars yellow LEDs about, so If i just swap it, will it work ok or keep blowing?

It just looks daft at night with only half of the console lit up


Cheers

Ahh good

So, if I swap it, will it just blow again or is it just the initial change to blue bulbs that does it?

Cheers

Ok, i took the Centre Console out, couldn't find the bulbs at all, but I managed to break my centre knob i think

I took it off by wedging it out with a screwdriver, it flew across the car and when I came to putting it back on again, it goes on alright, but when I try and pull it out to turn on rear demisters, it pulls off in my hand !!!

Have I bust it or have just put it on wrong?

Cheers

you've probably bust it by yanking too hard.

the gay thing now is that if you want a replacement centre knob from vauxhall, you're going to have to buy the whole part which includes the part behind the knob
or you could visit a scrap yard and get one from there.
