Replacement lens for heated seat indicators

Apparently, when I created and installed my aux audio connector, these fell out. Now, everything works, but it looks like crap.

Suggestions for replacements?

Just going to throw this out there but...what about clear silicone?

I don't think the silicone will allow light pass through it, but an idea non the less.

Thought about modifying some old light brite pegs, but that process could be very tough

Have you found any replacements yet? I have a few electronics stores and I'm going to give them a try with the hope I can just modify something.

jbehr99 12-19-2012 05:09 PM

I was not able to find a replacement. I just let it be and I try not to notice it...

Well, I need 6 so, if we split, u get screwed

jbehr99 12-20-2012 02:52 PM

Yes, I need 6 too.

OK, these items are referred to as "light pipes". I don't have a micrometer to take measurements, but if someone does and can report dimensions, then I think finding a source online might be rather easy.

$30, solves the problem, just buy one EACH ;)
