Default 1994 940 Instrument Cluster Lighting

My instrument cluster in my auto N/A 940 has a lightbulb burnt out. I am wondering what lights are best to replace inside.

Also curious to hear opinions of people who have LED swapped the instrument cluster. My interior is all blue so the thought of blue lights is cool to me.

I did mine a while back and I'm really pleased with it! Need to turn the brightness slider down quite low otherwise the LEDs are too bright.

LEDs in action (img tag doesn't seem to work)

I used these for the main four bulbs in the cluster: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10x-COB-8...t/133027237918

And these for the small one above the speedo: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3-LED-T5-...W/253886691914

I did have to fiddle around a little with the small bulb so that I didn't have a bright spot around "70" on the speedo.

I also did the lights in the dash switches (that was more of a pain and needed some soldering) but it's best to do them all otherwise the old filament bulbs are way too dim compared to the LEDs. I still need to do my heater controls cos I couldn't work out how to get access to the bulbs.

While you're at it do the overhead courtesy light with one of these too! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LED-12v-C...M/253272357316
