2017 Outback Premium 2.5i with Eyesight
I know this is nitpicking, but I wanted to see if there was a way to fix it.
At night, I drive with the dash on the dimmest setting. In my opinion, it isn't dim enough, but its OK. What bothers me is the high beam indicator.
It doesn't dim with the rest of the dash, and with the high beams on, the light from the indicator is too bright.
Last night, I drove about 250 miles of highway and I saw 4 different vehicles pulled over after striking deer. I slowed down and turned on the auto-brights feature. It is an awesome feature (works much better than the similar feature in my old 89 Thunderbird), but that blue indicator on the dash gives me one **** of a headache with how bright it is. I tried adjusting the seat up and down, as well as the steering wheel, but I couldn't block the light or move to where it didn't seem so bright.
Is there any way, beyond putting a piece of tape on the dash, to dim this light? Would I void my warranty by attempting to open up the cluster and put a coating or film over where the light shines through? Any other ideas?
I know there isn't an immediate need to accomplish this, as I rarely drive long distances at night but it would be nice if I could do something permanent that didn't involve a piece of black electrical tape.
