What I'm wondering is how does it get the color? I recall those icons being on the removable piece of plastic but how do they get the color? Are you saying there is a little piece inside the plastic that adds the color? It makes no sense to me how my outer indicator could be right on (high beam), but the color is not even close to being in the right spot.

That is a good idea, I wonder where you could find something like that.

You mean how do they get the color on here??

I have no idea, but you probably could find a transparent paint, or check the dealer, who knows what that'll cost.

No problem, it was just here on the floor on the way to the trash. The PO got Crazy Glue on it when he tried to glue the cluster back together. I ripped it.

I can't imagine being quick enough to glue that whole face with crazy glue, I thought about using silicone before, but your idea is the best. Just replace it. Where did you find that paint at? I've looked at Home Depot and a huge grocery store like super Walmart before, I never found the right color.
