986 S Blue Backlit Cluster/Hvac/Switches


Cluster has 106k on it and a custom Light Difuser. HVAC LCD was replaced shortly after the blue mod with a refurbished display. All 8 switches were also converted to Blue from the factory Orange.



$450 Shipped

UPDATE: Just removed the LCARS Difuser because someone bought it and complained it was defective because they didn't like it.

I've gotta ask... How in the world did you swap everything to blue lights?

Every single Amber LED was desoldered off of the PCBs and new blue LEDs were soldered into their place. I spent a few hours for a couple nights doing it.

Thank You.

Had to make a difuser because the factory piece is orange and won't let blue light through.

After selling the wheel, I decided if you see it here, buy here. Ebay fees are crazy.

I have the OEM OBC cluster. Looks like a tiny dot matrix display. Will this work with that?

Yes only the color and diffuser has changed. They are still the same SMD LEDs that came factory.
