THIS VIDEO SHOWS HOW TO REMOVE YOUR HONDA ELEMENT’S GAUGE CLUSTER TO ACCESS THE LIGHT BULBS BEHIND THE GAUGES.
The gauges on the Honda are easily accessed by removing 2 panels with an upholstery removal tool, or panel clip remover. It is advised to not use a screw driver to pry the panels off, screw drivers tend to mar the edges of the dash panels.
I recommend not using the tool that i used in the video, i didn’t have a nylon prybar at the time and I risked scratching or damaging the element’s dash. You will probably want to get a set of automotive panel removal tools like this set at amazon: http://amzn.to/1sUHz2P You will get the panel fastener removal tool and a selection of plastic prybars.
You can easily change the color of your gauges by swapping all the bulbs to colored LED like these ones: http://amzn.to/1TPdvPR
THE TOOLS NEEDED TO REMOVE THE GAUGE CLUSTER OR CHANGE THE BULBS ARE:
1. Upholstery Panel Clip Remover or Panel Pry Tool
2. Phillips Head Screwdriver
