Digital Speedometer LED replacement

So I wasnít able to find a post where anyone actually replaced the SMD LEDs on their digital Speedometer. So I cracked mine open to grab some pics and figure out what size LEDs are on the board.

There are 5 LEDs that light up the face and odometer.

Can anyone identify the LED type from these pics? Iíd love to swap to Blue LEDs

Well my LED guess was correct, the LED type is 3528. I was able to replace the 5 outer most LEDs and a quick test showed that it worked awesome. Itís a for sure pain in the ass to roll back the chrome ring. I had to grind a old screw driver to make a tool to run around the ring to open the speedo (pretty much like any old speedo if youíve ever opened one). Then you gotta carefully pry the face plate off. Its just stuck on. Then thereís a cover with two torx screws. Then the PCB will come out. Iíll post pics tomorrow after I reinstall it. I took this time to paint the Speedometer bezel black and am waiting for that to dry. But below is what I ordered (eBay) their website works too. Fast shipping too and cheap.
