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.
Well What i have seen is that the lights are sottered into the electric board panel...and the LED look really small not like the typical LED we typicaly see!!! but I have see a lacer with the blue interior glow and it looks pretty sweet in Opinion
I actually just did that last week. If your not handy with a soldering iron or have a steady hand I seriously suggest not trying it. The leds you need are called "0603" surface mount leds. They're literally smaller then a grain of rice and if you aren't careful u can EASILY FRY UR CLIMATE CONTROL BOARD. With that being said it looks damn good if you do it... If ur thinking u may wanna attempt this google image "0603 led" and you'll see what I'm talking about. Goodluck with whatever u decide to do
i see what your saying and i agree with it for the most part. in my honest opinion though rice would be putting lights in the vents, floor, underglow, and everything else we know as rice. But changing the climate control knobs from red to blue is the equivelant of buying a passport escort 8500 in blue rather then red because its easier on the eyes :shades:
edit: better example: say you have a rally red x.. but you always wanted a purple x... they dont make purple x's..... what do u do if your hearts set on purple? if you have the $ you go get yourself a paintjob lol
Hey first time posting here I just had a general question or if someone can point me in the right direction . I looked it up and ran into this ? /www.evoxforums.com/threads/side-mirror-with-lights . I’m still confused though so I picked up a pair of 2015 Side Mirrors the ones with the blinkers...
So I recently aqcuired a set of factory HIDs, both myself and the seller contaced our local dealers, and both dealers told us that I would need new harnesses to make them work. However, I had a dream last night that I just plugged them in and they worked..but then I woke up and realized it was...
I gave Evo&Son a set of Ganador Mirrors for Xmas.
The look is a matter taste. I describe the look difference between factory and Ganador as the factory mirrors are like a dog with his ears straight up and the Ganador is like a dog with his ears back.
Moving on to the install.
Ive searched and searched but no luck. I want a single exit diffuser for my evo x but i havent found any companies that make it. Please, rexpeed, varis, seibon, chargespeed, make a single exit rear valance for our cars id buy one :rock:
