ok so i got my cluster/4x4/headlight/cargo switch all soldered up. they look awesome! but i went to take a part my hvac control and broke the lever trying to pop the little rubber cover off. do you guys have any tips or tricks to taking apart the manual climate control 2 knobs(fan speed/air direction) 2 sliders (driver temp/pass temp)? i have a new hvac control on the way and wanna figure out how to get this done before i break the new one as well!


thanks


oh and some pics!

I have the ones to do the cluster, but what did you use to do like the 4 wheel drive and stuff?

i used the same bulbs as i did the cluster so they appear the same in color. used the same process to do them as well. i ordered 30 led's so that i would have enough to do all my controls. still have 15 left!

ya albany to rochester is quite a trip im smack dab btw you two in rome/utica ny...anyways so by my understanding jaylat you used 194 led bulbs to solder in behind your gauge cluster? never thought of that...must work pretty good seeing how those bulbs are already 12V no need for resistors.....

all of them require soldering. all require the resistors

i did not use the 194's. they are for the pre-'03 trucks. i used the 360* superbrightleds.com 5mmblue led's. i got 2-194 blue 5led bulbs 1 for each of my autometer gauges. they look sick! cant wait to get the climate control done and do the doors!
