2008 VUE 3.6L
Dizzy Need help with Instrument Cluster Bulb size

Hi there, I have been searching all night trying to find what the correct bulb size is for the instrument cluster. I have a 2008 Vue Xr and I'm wanting to change the color of the speedometer. I'm not liking the orange color it comes with. I would really appreciate the help anyone can give. I went through all of the threads and couldn't find an answer. I did see in another thread topic someone replaced the bulbs on a 2007 and used B85D from superbrightleds.com. Would these bulbs work? I'd hate to take it in to a custom auto mod shop when I can easily do it myself. The help would be much appreciative because I'm almost to the point of giving up.

If i remember correctly the instrument cluster is backlighted with leds soldered into the circuit board. You would have to pull the cluster and risk breaking it.
It's your call whether you want to risk that.

Yes, that sounds about right. I was just wondering if anyone who has achieved this can tell me what size bulb they used. I'd hate to take out the instrument cluster to check the bulbs to see which size, just to put it back in and take out once again when the bulbs get shipped.
