Hey guys.

Was trying to install the lights in the AC unit.

And now i broke one of the bulbs(existing) and i think i cant use the holder anymore as well.

I recieved 3x LED's and 3 x lights that look exactly like the dash lights.

Problem was that these lil bulbs would not come out of the holders, so i broke one of the bulbs :(

This is the comparison. I don't believe these lights can fit into the holders.

What do i do???

Are there any places where i can get a replacement holder for the light?

And how am i meant to fit these lights in to the AC button bit? As they didn't come with holders, and i don't think the existing holders allow the bulb to come out.

HELPPP!!!!

Those are wedge-bulb LED's...

1) You need to unwrap the wires before you pull the bulbs out.

2) I have not found any pre-made bulbs that will work in those holders

Apart from that... I have a couple of working ones here. I changed mine to LED's, but that was self-made. It's doable.

The LED's came with their own holders so it is no real biggie.

Just that the T5 or T10 bulbs didn't and i don't know how to put these in.

From my understanding i am meant to solder these onto the metal connectors.

Mioght give it ago.

UPdate:

all fixed.

Just trimmed down the holders and the base of the replacement lights.

THen just wired them up to the factory holders and screwed them back in.

Worked a charm.

    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi
