LED replacements for stock cluster bulbs?

Electronics aren't my thing. I understand the bulbs below are for the instrument cluster, how would I go about finding drop in (twist in?) LED replacements (in blue)? I'm hoping not to solder. I looked at the sportscarleds but they only say for models up to 2000.

999 631 302 90 Bulb 1.2W (warning lights, X17)
999 631 303 90 Bulb 1.5W (LCD back lights, X3)
999 631 304 90 Bulb 3W (gauge lights, X10?)

Unfortunately, all of your gauge cluster lighting consists of surface mount LEDs (aside from the lower warning lights).

I found a basic tutorial when searching for info for your interior lighting.
It's fairly good, though there is quite a bit of inaccurate information.

Thanks!

Trying to get all the info in this I can. I thought for sure the LCD displays were bulbs. Guess I'm going to have to pull the cluster at some point.

Is there a way to find the LED equivalents to the bulbs listed above?
