Thanks for that

For the needles I confess I cheated.  Shocked
My original display had a crack in front so I was going to replace it and luckily I found this on e bay

Galaxy Clocks

Seeing it had red needles which I thought the galaxy didn't have I brought it, the scratches on it he describes are so small you can hardly see them. I just took the needles off, swaped the clocks over and used the front part.

What is not clear in the photos is the chrome tacho rings which just finish it off.   Grin Grin

Looks superb all finished Dave!! Definitely need to sort mine out now! On your LCD displays, were the 286 bulbs that were there in the middle of the displays or at the side like with the roof clock?

Also, what is the green warning light you have underneath the battery one? I don't have that!

Oh, and how were the indicator lights done? are they white bulbs with a green filter too?

The bulbs for the LCD displays are in the middle at the rear.

I replaced the original 'twist lock' bulbs with these 5mm super bright blue LED'S from Maplins. I used these as they are recommended for LCD displays.

All I did was solder them to the original twist lock bulb contact points on the PCB as can be seen in the photos.

As for the warning car and indicator lights I peeled the black front cover with all the symbols on it and using 1200 wet and dry I just sanded the green backing off the indicator and car symbols, replaced the green 'paint' with blue electrical tape and for the illumination I replaced the original bulbs with the same LED'S from Maplins I used for the LCD displays again soldering them to the original contact points.

As for the warning symbol under the battery light, that is for the trailer indicator warning light for the factory fitted towbar, I am glad you mentioned that as I forgot to 'blue' that one  Grin Grin

Great minds think alike Gary   Grin

These are the first red needles I've seen for the Galaxy also the displays and illumination are all orange which is unusal as every Ford I've owned/ been in has always been Green.

What I am wondering is if these were in fact from a Sharan and not a Galaxy.  Huh?

5mm wedge type led the brighter the better already pre armed ,with resistors and wires

drill a small hole in each air vent,so you need to pull the air vent out from the dash.push the led home into the hole drilled,then wire up to car lighting wiring,

hay prestow job done
