How do I change the screen colour to blue?
There is two globes that light up the buttons and they are changed but the screen continues to be green.
What do I have to change/do to change this?

I know, for example, the trip computer screen on level 3 dashes you have to take out the green defuses and replace the LED's behind, so I am guessing that this screen will be something similar, but I can't see how it lights up, as there is no globes behind it.

The 2 tube globes light up the plastic behind the green difuser

Yep did this to my VN the other day - also removed the plastic stand it was on and the white backing strip inside the front cover where it says "climate control"

There is 2 tubes. I pulled the base of 2 x T5's blue spark LED's and aimed them at the thick clear plartic that the LCD screen sits on.

So far I have done 2. Photo in my other photo album in my profile. The screen had bleeds through it and had the green difuser removed. Much better even spread of blue.

The second one I left the difuser in and you can see a "dead spot" where the temp is displayed.

I know I am bumping up an old thread here, but how did you go about removing the green defuser? I have a spare climate control I want to try this on and I can't seem to figure this out.

Ah ok, I figured that would be the case. I am comfortable doing this, I was just hoping for an easier solution. Thanks anyway :)
