    Silly but Annoying Instrument Light Fault

    A couple of weeks ago the left-hand back light went out behind the Temp Gauge in the instrument cluster. It stayed out for four days or so. Then one evening I noticed it had come back on again. It has stayed working since. What's bugging me is it is now brighter than the other two of the set. Any ideas as to why & what I need to do to fix this as I'm finding really distracting. Cheers.

    Could be a dodgy bulb/holder. you can replace it, i'd advise replacing them all if you are, as you need to remove the speedo to do so.
