Now the bulb, which i've learned at the time, is not same size as ur tiny, old bulb. Thus meaning, it's not going to be a direct fit. So don't push it all the way down otherwise you can't fit it back into the hole you got it from. So what you'll need to do is shove it HALFWAY into the gray bulb holder and tape it on sides to hold it on. Use whatever tape is available to you. it's ok to tape it on the sides of the led bulb itself, the light isn't going to shine through that part only through the top.

*Update (09/10) the bulbs you'll get from superbrightleds.com should be able to fit in with no problem. The newer design of the current bulbs since this original posting, should be slimmer, so it should be able to fit without modification.
Superbrightleds.com is the way to go. they have better leds for a real cheap price. plus they have a warranty with their products too.

yes this can work on your dials, except your dial are #194 bulb. the 3 three different types of #74 bulbs all just varies in brightness and price, that's the only difference. the cheapest one is #74-x and that's the one i have.

So this only changes the Trip/Odometer color? What bulbs do I need to change out the ugly green Tach/Speedometer color to red? Are they the three bulbs in this picture? Are they those 194s?
