HELP! At my wits end! Dash lights change help

Hi everyone,

I really am stuck here now.

So i have removed all the pcbs in my fn2 to change leds from green to red. I've read all the threads e.g. Blue led change.

I have changed some to red incandescent in the ac unit myself.

I don't trust my soldering particularly to change the smd leds myself or the smaller soldered in ones. Can anyone suggest somewhere or someone to do this? Or any members done themselves willing to do mine? I did have an electronic repair guy lined up to do it but now its all gone quiet.

This is holding me up putting the entire dash back together as understandably i have all the door cards and everything off too.

I'm happy to pay for this to be done, just feel like i've hit a wall with it.

Thanks.

Totally agree with you. I must have rang ten times and emailed twice.
