Tired of the green cluster lights? Changing them to blue LED's is very simple and wont cost you very much!

Tools and parts you will need:
- 8 LED lights, inverted lens wide angle, 12V 194 (6 if you dont replace the turn indicators)
- Philips screw driver, stubby and a long one.
- Pliers
- Piece of rubber hose
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...

Does the 10mm diameter x 32mm overall 5 Led SMT Tower 194 fit? Will it be too long? Thanks.

I literally have just spent 4 HOURS trying to do this on my '05, and I've succeeded in breaking one bulb, and breaking one of the gray things, how the HELL do you get these bulbs out without breaking them, seriously me, my mom, my friend, and his friend all tried it, I finally had to put my cluster back together and go to bed cuz it was so frustrating, any help would be much appreciated!

Some of the bulbs/LED's were soldered in, but I can't recall what year(s). You may need to get new twist mounts.

The '05s are the ones that need new holders. Says it in the first 3 posts 2 times. :)

So there's no way around buying new twist mounts, I called a junkyard that pulls parts for you, they only sell the whole '03 cluster, but I can't really justify paying $65 for 5 silver things lol.

Just snag the sockets from any 1st or 2nd gen Neon, or any Mopar from 1990 and up.
