Need: White LED, one piece of cutter knife, clear plastic wrap, dryer.

(I will not explain about how can we remove climate controller part)

04-06 Solara climate controller's color is green because back of climate controller panel, it has green film. so just peel out green film and change bulb any color, you can make it.

In my case, just took 15 min .


1. heat climate contoller with dryer

Image

2. remove climate controller panel

Image

3. wrap back adhesive part with clear plastic wrap

Image

Image

4. to take off green film, remove clear plastic wrap apart.

Image

5. peel green film with cutter knife

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

6. remount it.

7. change bulb


(P.S. just ignore my grammar, lol)

On back of controller, there are 3 led bulb.

In my case, I made it with LEDs+resistors. I saw on Ebay (T3,T4? not sure)
Dealer shop sell it for $5 each.
