Lightbulb DIY part # for ABL (Pictures of Installation included!!!)

To do the ABL on your dash this is what you need to Buy.

1 From gm you need to buy 3 lights in the color you need.

The part # for the blue lighting is 92238395

The part # for the orange lighting is #92228416 (it is red)

And the light tube is from Me.

And one last part GM removed the connectors on all cars, 2010up past the VIN 9160000 so if you have that number you will need to t-tap or get a harness that is plug and play

This is It

Ok "Tag", You know i need sleep at 12:14 PM i was dreaming of LSX 454 and a cam making 650 RWHP in my Camaro. LOL

So This is the hard part The work Go to your car and pull the side cover over on the drivers side see pics



And pull it out gently you will fell it pop out it is held in by some snap clips (all the parts are held in that way ) More pics



Next you will see the connector on the drivers side, In this pic i have the connector in red and the outer end on, See pic.



Next you remove the speedometer off so lats do that, More snap clips to remove from the top pop off Gently and first move the wheel out and down Pics.



And more



And now pull up on the trim, If i can do it with my fat hands you can do it.



This is the back side for you to see.



Now there is 4 screws that you will remove to get the speedometer out the way, And as you can see there is 2 alignment pins over the 2 bottom screws so you can not do it wrong.



And this side.



Now to remove the speedometer, First you do NOT need to remove the wires on the speedometer, In this pic you will see that i put a red line on the pic that is where you need to pull up on the dash so you can tilt the speedometer forwarder to get it out see pics.



And this pic.




And this so you can see i did not remove the wires on the Speedometer.

More pics for you

And to keep going i needed some time.

Now that we removed the speedometer from the dash it all there for us to do.

Next we need to find the 2nd connector and it is in front of you in the center of the wires behind the speedometer look at this 2 pics.



And this.



One more for fun.



Now that we know that wear the two connector are we need to pull the dash trim off, As before be gentle More snap clips see pics, Start at the ends of the dash.



And pull, Ups my fat hand in the pics.



This is the long side so lots of clips on the drivers side there is only 2 clips.








Next is the hard part to drill in your dash, Do not worry if you do it right you will not see it, So do it right.

If you are not happy and do not get it P.M. me, And we can see if i can help, Now i do have a job so give me some time to help you, And if I do help you out, See if you can help some one who needs it.

You can see that there is a small triangle spot at the end of the dash on the 2 sides of the dash that is wear you drill, at the top and out as far as you can go, see pics.





And now we start to put it together This is the way i did my car.













More info soon.

Think you could list the parts that would be needed for 1lt/1ss, because we also need the door setup right? Sorry I dont have the car yet; just wondering. Thanks

we do not have plastic panels. Ours are a kind of cloth. We would need to buy replacement panels for the doors and dash.

As Primus said the 1LT and 1LS guys will have to buy the whole new door panel. They run $250 each side plus s/h. Then you will also have to run the wiring as it isn't included either.

I just ordered the parts and will do a complete write up with pictures and detailed instructions when the parts come in. Looking forward to getting this done the way I think it should have been done for ALL the Camaros!

There are trim kits that are in the works for you 1LT & 1SS guys (and anyone looking to change color with a 2LT or 2 SS) that include both acrylic door panel inserts and both dash inserts, however you will need to add light tubes to the doors also to your 1 LT or 1SS. They are shown on gmparts direct for $327 for the kit, but not yet available
92221433 for Yellow
92221438 for Orange
92233738 for White
92233739 for Silver
Keep the faith

This is going to be so cool! I can't wait to get mine installed! It won't make any much difference now because it's always daytime but when winter comes and I'm driving to work in the dark and home in the dark it's going to be worth it! (Of course if the Camaro will probably be safely in the garage for the winter but...)

Awsome.

Lots of detail, I just hope it goes as smooth. I am just waiting for GM to restock the Blue LEDS.

I already have the light pipe.

Great work, Thanks for the Info.

All the way around the doors would look SICK! A single line of blue wouldn't be bad at night. But, I think driving at night with a full glowing door could get distracting.

As for the doors, I'm going to pull off the panel and see if there is actually tape at the ends of the light pipe (which keep the light from illuminating all the way to the doors). If so, I'm taking that crap off. I want my light pipes to run smooth all the way...door to door with no stops. Great job, once again.

What holds the light source and the light tube in place? Does it just rest behind the trim?

Great thread by the way!

Thanks!
