It's easy if you know what to do.
the door panel just unclips.
The glue is easy to prise out with a utility knife (watch you fingers)
Had to unsolder from the to pins that connect it to the plug.

Dave what type of fun you on about????

I think it's time I bought a soldering iron!
Just fun with changing colour LEDs in the car. I'd like to change to blue, I bet you could change the dash ones too

I got the ones in the link, they come with the resisitor pre-soldered to the led.
I just cut the wire off and then soldered it too the pins?
Any problems let me know.
