    There is no way to change the color without taking out the cluster.....and even then you cant just change the bulbs because the face of the gauages has a green film on them.....

    yea but you don't have to disassemble the dash to get the cluster out

    on the tutorial it calls for some light sanding to remove the green film then putting colored bulb condoms over the bulbs and then you can get whatever color you want, I am going red when I get a chance to do it have already done my radio and HVAC

    Yea i see what your saying....the dash doesnt need to be removed.....simply just the cluster....the link i posted mentions just removing the cluster so hopefully the OP gets the idea
