    Bulbs??

    2 bulbs have gone in my car one down by the lighter and ashtray and the other is on the dash itself where the petrol gauge is.
    Does anyone know how to change these as it is doing my head in?

    Cheers Ian

    The lighter / ashtray one is fairly easy. Just remove the cover from around the lighter by pulling it off then open the ashtray and hold the flap down you should see four hex screws undo the two outer ones and then the ashray should pull out with a little force. the bulb will be attached to the lighter.

    Fuel gauge is a little more complex but still an easy job TBH.

    Undo the four hex screw from the black surround two at the top (underneath) and two behind little covers each side of the steering column. pull it out from above the steering wheel (adjust your wheel so it as close to you and all the way down for more space) then undo the two hex srews each side of the clocks. Move the white tab to the left at the top of the clocks and they should then come out with a little jiggiling. bulbs screw out from the back.

    Hope this helps

    re: Bulbs??

    Can you replace the bulb that lights up the air cond switch by just taking out the ashtray and the spare din size storage area above, or do you have to remove the whole centre consul?. I got one bulb gone.... :roll:

    I'm pretty sure you will have to remove the center console as you wont be able to get your hand around the back to twist the bulb.

    pull harder!

    Seriously grip it with your hands around the whole unit and pull towards you and it will come out. Try not to break it though as i'm not going to pay for a new one. :|
