Question Dashboard

Hi,
hope some one can help...
One of the bulbs has gone behind/near to the fan speed dial on my 2005 JTD.
Although the main instrument binnacle is straight forward with the two Allen screws on the lower top - I can't for the life of me see any exposed screw or Allen screw heads around the central panel !
Any bright folk want to shed some light (or offer me a white stick!) on how to get it off?

Alex

Re: Dashboard

Sorry, can't help with the access problem, but I have had several cars which responded well to a good hard slap on the dashboard near the offending bulb!

Seems to wake them up!

Re: Dashboard

The instrument binnacle appears to be a flat single PCB and there are no bulbs as such to back light it. I think I has small LEDs/diodes to provide illumination - if so either the heater control area needs a 'slap' or pehaps that's just the way its supposed to look?
