    Question mk3 'F' Dash Bulbs

    I'm looking to replace the bulbs which are out in my heater control and heater rear screen, has anyone replaced these, and are they a complete dash and heater unit out job? and the HRS, is the bulb in the switch or behind as part of the heater controls?.

    regards

    Al.

    Right, just a quick guide, its a bit of a mission though...

    Think this is right, just done from memory....

    Cowel off the steering wheel: 2/3 screws underneath, two on the front and the ignition barrel gromit
    Dash/clock cowel: two screws at top, one at bottom either side of wheel i think
    remove left and right dial on center console (just pull off)
    middle one needs a small screwdriver in from the bottom to release a clip
    -screws behind these dials
    center air vents prised out to reveal more screws
    a screw over by the steering wheel.
    screws in each bottom corner.

    And if you're lucky, jobs done.

    To replace the bulbs it's pretty obvious once you get to this stage.

    Good luck, hope this has helped.
    PS I Stole it

    hi all, just replaced heater panel lights on my MK3 astra, took about an hour. worst bit was the Recirculating switch light , popped out the switch from the front and it was easy then.
