you will need a soldering iron, solder and flux. some small heat shrink tubing would be good also.

this is a good site for all your case modding needs. they may be a little pricey on some stuff, but unless you can find it local then at a microcenter or Fry's then they are the place.

seems rather high for shipping. you can get them on amazon.com also. "search 3mm LED" shipping was only like $5 for a $0.98 LED. I alway get one more than I need just in case on doesn't work or I fry it or something like that.

if you are just replacing the the LED there should already be a resister in the line some where. the resister is very small and is probably attached to one of the LED's on the circuit, but is hidden by the heat shrink.
