That Blue High Beam Spot Light!!

I know i can't be the only one that is blinded by the high beam dash indicator. It gets to the point where I would rather drive with the lows on because the blue light is so bright, even with the dash lights adjusted all the way down. So my question is, how easy would it be to replace the bulb on the dash for the high beams? Or is it an LED..considering tinting my gauge glass lol

They're all LEDs behind the gauge cluster.

I dont find this one too bad myself but had other vehicles that the placement and brightness drove me nutz...the simplest thing i found was to cut a tiny square of black electricians tape and put it over the light..if you tint your dash glass you will not be able to see the other lights you need to see

I thought someone might have covered this but I couldn't find it through the search magic. Maybe I'll give the electrical tape a try. How hard is it to get the cluster out?
