Has anybody tried changing their green hvac controls to red yet? The '05 controls are dif' from earlier versions and are not merely bulbs to change colored condoms on.
Attached is a pic.
Control to the left is with the silver front bezel off. Control to the right is with everything off.
What it appears to be the green light source are the three items labeled 4, 5 and 6 that are possibly leds mounted on the circuit board with some sort of green covering over them.
It's not really visible in the pic but item #7 is the orange light source for #2 which doesn't seem to be colored in any way. Item 7 has a very, very small dot inside that looks red which I'm assuming is some hyper bright red light that actually colors the clear item #2.
Items 4, 5 and 6 look taller than 7, like the top half is a colored screen stacked on the light itself.
Item #1 looks to be a clear light "diffuser" and is circular shaped going most of the way around the inside of the control (i.e. from 7 o clock to 4 o clock).
I have tried (gently) scraping off the top of items 4, 5, 6 to no avail. Tried prying off the top to no avail. Also nail polish remover (acetone) does no good either. I was thinking of trying a red sharpie pen but who knows what foul color green and red would make???
I need to be REAL careful here because who knows what body part Subaru will want for a new hvac circuit board!
Any experience or suggestions?
