Did you try and pull the gauge all the way out of the dash and find it that way? I had to do a few of mine that way.

Yes, I will be a Marine until the day that I die.

I realize this thread is getting a bit old but I thought I'd post some pics after I installed my new courtesy/dash lights. Note that cameras and I do not get along so the photos are dead set ordinary. Thanks for posting this Chilly, the evening outings will have a great mood now with the increased lighting.

Aaroncat, how did you do the cup holders? What did you use and stuff like that?

For the cup holders I used these. These were on another thread here but I can't find it right now. If I do manage to find it I will link you to it.
They come rigged with a resistor already inline so that they can be wired up to 12V DC (i.e. the main battery) without having to do anything special. I just T'd into the courtesy lights using these t-splice connectors that you can get at any auto parts or hardware store.
These particular LED's sit perfectly on top of the drain hole on my 2009 Outback V cup holders without having to actually fix them to anything. I just popped the wires down through the hole T'd them into the courtesy lights and was done.2009 Outback V
