?' for those of you who have done the led gauge conversion
hey i went to work thinking it would be the easiest to pull the gauges out... the led soddering be the hardest...

pull it out so you can look behind it as much as possible. on each one there is a plastic tab that you gotta push down as you pull out, but what i did was to push down on the flap and then get a flathead screw driver and wedge it between the gap between the socket and the pin. then wiggle it back and forth to loosen/pry it apart it and it will pop right out.

yup, get a little stubby flat head screwdriver in there and they should pop right out!
