Has anyone disassembled the gear selector to see if it's possible to change the red-selector to blue? I think it would look good to make it match the rest of the car's highlights.
Right next to the gear selector. It highlights the selected gear in red. The rest of the accents in my Volt are blue. I don't know what it is, or if it can be changed, to make them match a little better. If it's a bulb or piece of colored plastic or something?Are you talking about the selector or the indicator? My selector is already blue.
That might work. I managed to pop the center console off but couldn't take it all the way off to see what's what because the shift knob was in the way. I'll try again tomorrow, I guess.I dunno about taking it apart, but since the surrounding color is mostly black, have you considered applying a tranparent, colored film over the area so that the selector appears blue?
I changed this bulb in my last car from white to blue. I liked the results other than it made it harder to see at night. I'll look into it at some point on this car as well.Older cars, this selector bulb is just a colored condom. Could very well be the same with this. Good luck.
I couldn't find an exact pic but they basically look like this:Depending on the LED surface, perhaps you can just use a blue sharpie and color them? When you want to return to normal, just soak a cotton swap with rubbing alcohol and 99% of the sharpie ink should be gone. No one would be the wiser. You will lose some intensity similar to the film idea.
