Its an easy process...you have two routes; one in up and under the helm and the other is removing the gauges individually. I changed out all my bulbs in another brand of boat and use the cool white led bulbs...I didn't look to see what MC you have.

The bulbs that you will possible have difficultly with will be the Perfect Pass because their bulb is internal and maybe the depth gauge if its a stand alone model because its bulb is also internal. I was unable to change these in my other boat but that doesnt mean that someone else doesn't have a how to.

If your bulbs are colored they might have a colored sleeve that gives the color hue. If this is the case then you can remove the color hued cover and see if you like the "white" light that is the bulbs natural color.

If this is not the case, the bulb is likely a festoon bulb and they have a printed model on them from which you can use and go to a superbrightleds.com or ozuimum.com and order an led replacement bulb.

I like the cool white led bulbs, but they have all kinds. Just use their cross reference bulb data base with your bulb's...I think mine were 168 but its going to be printed on your bulb

superbrightleds.com bulb reference guide give the 194 and the 168 as the bulbs that are most likely. I get the 194

I saw that your boat is an 2003 X2 so you could try the removal of the sleeve and see if you like that before spend $.

Thanks,

I'm not worried about the PP gauge just the others.
