    Its pretty involved. You either need to switch to a different color LED or remove all the bulbs and cover them with colored light condoms or color them with a red Sharpee.

    that red sharpie is a new solution - most people seem to go the bulb cover route

    for an 05+ wrx its not that easy to change the colors of the HVAC....theres drilling and soldering involved with leds and resistors

    for 04 and lower its really easy....just buy bulb condoms .2 or .12 in size

    ok heres a link to do the hvac.....its exactly what i did except i only used 3 leds instead of 6 (thus using a different resistor)

    http://www.iwsti.com/forums/interior...s-05-06-a.html

    for the clock i think u can just buy a bulb condom for it but i don't have the clock anymore...i have guages in its place so idk how that would work...i'm guessing its just like the lighter but i could be wrong
