My 2005 MTX PZEV ZX3 without a tach needs 3 bulbs, not 1
im not talking about the three 194 bulbs that u'll see when u open up the gauge cluster, im talking about the bulb BEHIND the lcd screen itself. remember i did this SAME exact technique on an 06. and how to remove the black bracket, is stick a screwdriver in between each corner and try pop it out or remove it in a way it wont break.

Oh yeah, opps. Forgot this was only for the odometer. The 74 LED bulbs fit my cluster lights (which I wanted to figure out the size of for MONTHS), so that's good. I'm gonna pick up 4 SMT LED bulbs from vleds soon.

Thanks a lot.

yeh, it's just only for the lcd screen itself. and the gauges themselves, that's a different set. those r acually some gauge faces i got off of ebay. im planning on getting the indigo 6-color gauges. even though they're like $30 total with shipping, it's goin 2 b a way better upgrade.
