Default guage cluster lights

I have a 95 civic ex EG and I need to know what kind of lights are used for the instrument cluster? I want to change them to a diff color for the backlighting. I have a website that I think are them, but I need to know for sure before I buy them. Here is the link, they are at the very bottom. 74 light bulbs, i think....

http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...e/commerce.cgi

well, the link isn't acting right. here is a pic:
http://www.superbrightleds.com/store...mages/74-2.jpg

and here is the description:
74 Wedge Base LED bulb
Small Wedge Base LED bulb (74 type)~ 2 lumen
3/16 inch wide base, 13/16 inch overall length
Flat tipped LED produces wide beam angle


try this:http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-b...i?product=LEDS

type in 74 at the top, and then go down to the bottom of the page and those are them...

I just want to let everyone know, that I got my bulbs in today and I installed them. Wow, they make a difference inthe day. I am going to wait till the night and really see how much brighter they are. I replaced every bulb with red,blue,green,amber, and uv. Looks good so far. I will try to get a pic.

Are these the same size and the two bulbs in the heat control unit? Cuz mine always go out there and I think LED will last longer. By the way take some pics, I wanna see how it looks like

they are direct plug and play. spin the old ones out of the guage cluster and put in the new ones. no soldering...To be honest, I went factory colors, like green for the turn signals, blue for the high beams and red for SRS and oil light, etc. I reccommend not changing out the high beams. That bitch will blind you. Very bright, pretty but bright.

I also changed all my backlighting onthe guage to UV bulbs, and blue on the far outsides of the guages. I have blue/white gauges. I am looking for UV pens/ permanent markers and planning on coloring my needles with the uv marker. Thats one way to get colored needles. I will take pics when I get my car back. Maybe Friday, if all goes well.

I spent 50 dollars all together. I bought uv backlights and last night I bought uv stamp ink and I am going to cover my needles with the ink and it should light up pretty well. I will take pics of the cluster maybe friday. and pics of the needles with the uv ink whenever I get the ink. it didn't take but 20 minutes to change out the bulbs. I am pleased so far. pics coming soon

my gauges arent factory. I got the blue/white/red aftermarket gauges. and then change the light bulbs inthe back of your gauge to any color you want. thats what I did. but deffinitly get aftermarket gauges.

what are you talking about. all the lights in the guage cluster, on the back, are #74. not #24. My cluster doesn't have climate control. You talking about the lights inthe dash behind the radio/as controls? If so, then you got me there. we aren't talking about that if you are.

no i'm positive its 5 #24 and 1 #74 for the rear. I JUST did mine. This is EG correct? You remove the bulbs from it's base and plug in the #24s and #74 into the bulbs.


I just added the climate control in case people change color and also want the climate control above the radio to be the same color.


it even says in this how-to to use 5/24 and 1 74
