    Smile 240K Dash lights

    Right, all my guages work fine, even if the tacho is a little jumpy ..

    However ALL the dash lights are very very dull, even with the dimmer up full.

    Anyone got a resistor mod, or a dimmer mod for these???

    or can you get LED insertd to replace the old style bulbs??

    Thanks again!

    Yeah you can use LED,

    The standard globes are about 5w

    soooo

    you need 12v Wedge globes, which are available as an LED, but you will loose the ability to dim them,

    Hey, from memory some the globes in the dash are T10 (globe size) and some are a different size, but the main ones you want to change are the T10 ones, also there is a green cover over where the globe sits so if you want the LEDs to actualy light up your dash you may want to get rid of them, I did it by placing a screw driver in the hole (once I removed the globe) and give it a decent tap till the tabs break. I changed mine a couple of years ago but they weren't bright enough, was a single led, but the new ones are alot brighter these days, more LEDs per globe. Autobarn sell them at about three times the price you can get them from eBay, I bought some recently and from memory I paid about $20 Inc postage for 10 globes from hong kong. SMD LEDs seem to be the brightest I've found so far. Hope this helps

    we always need them to be green, to keep the classic style
    what I did, I replace them all by green bulb ( made in malaysia )
    actually I didnot noticed how many watts are they, but at least they fit
    without base modification, as you know the bulb base ( holder ) is big
    any way I got the green illumination but I did not get the brightness, so I will
    search for the LED bulb, but what I am worried about is the holder modification
    the C110 240k is a not normal car
