Dash lights

Alloah all, just wonderin bout my dash, the left hand electric window light is dead and so is the clock backlight? Are these common probs? Is it a case of whippin out the dash wif allen keys and changin the bulbs? Im thinkin of sprayin the dash yellow ( The dial surrounding section) The lighting is green...is this the bulbs? Or is the plastic coloured transparent green so it lets light thru? Ta, Grim

Ive been looking at the dash- its a coloured bit of perspex. and the bulbs are also behing turquoise filters

I'd assume that the filters can be cut off, and the light perspex can be solved by putting in some clear stuff

Arse

Ill think of something witty....just wait and see............wait I might not.

?

The dials are lit with clear bulbs through coloured plastic sheet.

Clock is lit with a clear bulb through green transparent sheet - you can change this easy enough.

Switches (on top dash) are lit with green coloured led's.

Window switches are lit with clear bulbs with little green condoms on.

Window switches? Since when have they lit up? Mine certainly never have done! Also i have no light behind the thing you slide along to select where you want the air to go, just above the temperature select slide switch. Is that meant to light up?

Another day...another problem...

Also, on the switch illumination colour debate, can the switches be made to go from being green to blue/red/whatever?

Another day...another problem...

Mckrob, for s**tty little bulbs- goto halfrauds. its as good a place as any for those- they dont do them in bulbholders tho- yu'll have to pull the old bulbs out!!

Ill think of something witty....just wait and see............wait I might not.
