Now you’ll see four large bulb holders. They twist out easily. Remove one at a time and remove/replace with new bulbs. I did not use the ones Amazon provided. I used my originals. These bulbs are polarized ( not an Electro wizard). When you reinstall it turn lights on, if it lights up great if not Turn it around it should light.
Well done. I'm coming up to replacing mine shortly (two are flickering so either failing connection or bulbs on the way out). Great to have a refresher esp reminder re polarization. I hadn't realised first time round so almost junked a few unecessarily.
I prefer green too. What wattage (or equiv wattage) did you go for? The last set I bought aren't as bright as I'd like.

I think the original filament bulbs are 5Watts. I went led rated at 7Watt (filament equivalent as of course leds don't actually draw that but its a short hand to parallel brightness) and think they should be brighter still.
Perhaps we need to hear from others re wattage equivalence or better still lumens. Too bright re led will ruin night vision. Too high wattage on an old school filament risks melting something.
I suppose I could try 15watt dimmable leds? I'm sure they're out there. Just a thought!
I have done the same to my Bird2 but not happy with the result.
The 5W leds are too bright in my opinion to the extent that they reflect too much on the screen shield.
I have tried the amber but was too yellow, the white ones turned out to be massively blue
I was looking for a more smoother light amber bulbs.
The set I currently have in mine are RGB adjustable. Not knowing what colour I wanted I went for bulbs that can be made different colours. They use a remote control to change the colour. I settled on green in the end. You could try the same experiment.
They are also dimmable (though I have them set to max ).
I bought them 5-6 years ago and the amazon link isn't valid anymore. I'll try to show something similar.
