This'll help you get the dash pod out. From there, you should be able to get behind the pod to locate the bulb that you'll need to order and replace. Hope this helps.

Speaking of the panel, is there anyone that sells blue replacement LCDs? The amber is not that attractive to me.

Exactly what I was looking for! It seems like it would be a very involved process to do this. Has anyone posted a DIY on this?

Also, has anyone seen a blue vs white comparison? Does one do better in sunlight than the other?

Goto Porscheleds.com....I have them in and they are awesome..and the company is great...the dash install is a breeze but the AC unit...you should send it to them and they do a top notch job.
AZ..they are both bright and come down to preference..
