Climate control color changes

I just bought my 2010 GSR in Octane Blue. I want to put blue interior lights but it will clash with the red climate control lights. Does anyone know how to change out the lights?

taking apart the climate control isn't difficult. The changing of the LEDs is the tricky part.

You will need to replace the red LEDs with the blue LEDs of same brand & type. Any other LEDs may either blows, or just not light up. However the most difficult part is that Automotive LEDs are usually sold in bulks & I doubt you can find them in your friendly Neighborhood store.

By the way, I design automotive center console area as my day job.

It's almost stereotypically shitty that someone with a base Lancer did the blue lights, too.

I have added the accent lights before but sottering into an electrical board makes me a little nervous...and I like the way the blue interior looks. What kind of accent lights were they?
