    you have to remove the centre console and then you can get to the back of the heater control unit. They are twist fit leds. Bloody nightmare job

    There are only two bulbs behind the heater controls...

    I had a problem with the bulb behind the heater controls... one of them was out... we'll thats what i though! I just gave the console a wack and next thing I know the bulb came back on - been ok ever since... must have been a loose conection.

    Give it a try... might just work! and might just save you a whole load of hassle.

    Yeah taken most of the areas of the dash apart as far as housing of bulbs is concerned. But the twistlock size for the area behind the heater dials is different to the dials and the digital display. Which is thoroughly wierd and bloody wierd. So trying to find out what size the twistlock is. Definitaly different as went to a few auto places to find out if they sold them and they said they were different.
