wow... white looks good as well... might need to get spare controls... just for fun
you won't be able to get LEDs in local stores, unless you have a very specialized electronics store near you. the best place is online... there are many reputable sites, google it!Anyone else know where to get the appropriate LEDs for the steering controls? I tried Radioshack at my place but they don't carry those.
Nice job...you save some people time, money and effort :clap:Great news everyone... Like I said, I was going to tackle the radio and HVAC this week... and the radio is the easiest mod you can ever do... y? because it's FREE!... all you will need it a screwdriver...
So, would I be able to pop out the ones that are on there now, and solder in the 1206's you think? Or should I wait for my white PLCC-2's to show up? Check out the statement below...Great news everyone...

I found out that the LED's are BLUE, except they have a green rubber capsule that gives it that aqua-green color... so all you need to do is remove the green capsules... there are 8 total that you need to do...
8 green capsules that need to be removed
HVAC will be done hopefully over the weekend
The window control LED is a tiny one, the same type they use in the radio. It is a 1206 size/model LED.
Which LED are you talking about? steering wheel control of radio? and what did you open up? the radio or the HVAC controls?hey netforcer, where did you directly get the blue led from? a direct link or the name of the site would be fantastic.
one question. i opened up the control and hvac controls. but im very confused. i don't see any green rubber capsules.. nor do i see any leds. im a noob at solderin. any help would be good. thanks
you providing pics would be helpful to me also... i'd like to see the inside of a base radiooh im tlkin bout the 1206 led blue 2500mcd. i can only find blue ones with 500 mcd. i wonder where you got urs... a link would be great
for opening things up, i have already opened up both the radio and hvac. i don't really see any small block rubbers, i see like 6 small blocks.. but with like a black thing on it... im sure it should be the same since we both have a camry 07 v6.... but im gonna get a friend to look at it 2nite. posting some pics would be great. thanks.
silversev6.. even though im not netforcer, i can answer ur question. basically there are 4 screws total, 2 on both sides of the plastic, one should be on the bottom and one should be behind a black sticker. if you take those both out, you should easilly access whats inside.hey, neforcer. How do you take off the plastic cover on the radio? I could just pull it off, but I dont wanna ruin it, and then run to the dealer like a little bitch :lol:
