This instructable shows you how to swap out your ambient console light in your Honda Ridgeline (or similar Honda automobile) with a different color. The factory color in my Ridgeline was amber and I switched it to blue.
Step 1: Tools required
8mm Socket and Driver or Phillips screwdriver
Official Honda Trim Removal tool or plastic picnic knife)
Victory HopDevil Beer
Step 2: Parts needed
The old part is an Amber t1.5 LED, the new part is a narrow beam Blue T1.5 LED purchased from superbrightleds.com
Step 3: Removing the console part 1
The first step to removing the console is to remove the 2 light covers from the interior lights. This is done by prying with a trim removal tool at the front and back edge of the light covers where the lights pivot (need illustration)
Step 4: Removing the console part 2
Next, remove the 4 screws that hold the console into the headliner. Two are under the sunglasses holder and the remaining 2 are under the light covers you removed in the previous step. The screws can be removed with a phillips head screw driver or an 8 mm socket (recommended). Once this is done the console will drop down.
Step 5: Removing the console part 3
Once the console is dropped from the headliner there are two wires to disconnect. Disconnect both the green and gray plugs and the unit can be brought to a clear work area.
Step 6: Separate homelink\lighting module from main housing
Next, the homelink module must be removed from the console. To do this, position the unit so it is upright and pry the tabs at the locations indicated in the photo. The module and lights should come free of the main housing.
Step 7: Remove homelink unit from light housing
Remove the homelink unit from the light housing by pushing in the 4 tabs, 2 on each side, and separating the parts.
Step 8: Remove the cover from the homlink unit
Pry at the 4 tabs to remove the cover from the homelink unit.
