Instrumental Cluster Bulb Replacement.

One bulb on Instrumental cluster gone.

I think to change all bulbs with LED Bulbs. Who has done it and can suggest which LED bulbs to use and how many bulbs does cluster need? Do you get Errors Messages after replacement original bulb with LED bulbs?

There are 5 incandescent bulbs used in the cluster...I have no idea about changing over to LEDs...but again, there's 5 regular bulbs used in the cluster's which have the same basic design as the e38/e39/e46.
