The only issues are the dashlight dimmer wont work ( have to turn it right up ) and the bulbs are polarity sensitive so you have to get them in the right way ( suggest you check this BEFORE refitting the dash ............and that didn't happen to me )

I believe that 3W are also suitable for the back illumination as I wouldn't have thought that they produce much more heat than 2W bulbs. As you probably already know, 5W bulbs in this application are a no-no as the extra heat that they emit can melt the plastic bulb covers/diffusers.
