Can I replace the lights in all of the dash buttons?

The buttons on my dash are currently all green (everything from the AC buttons to the radio and speedometer). Is there any way that I can replace the lights to make them red? It would be so sick looking

Thanks!

Suppose you could put LEDs on them, though I've heard LEDs look back there (not sure about colored.) Otherwise, you'd have to put a red cover over the lights instead of the green cover or whatever is over the bulb now.

after roughly 3 years, would there be any available bright led that would not need much of change in sockets?

are they socketed? I know in other vehicles they sometimes need to be desoldered.

They'll need to be soldered. The board is two sided, I believe, so you'll solder from the front. Also, maybe think about just removing the green covers and see what the clear looks like before diving into the red. Might work for you?! I'm sure there are videos on YouTube that will show you the way. Post what you end up doing!
