Hi there,

I've managed to get the dash off and can see the bulbs behind the switches but cannot work out how to get them out, do I literally pull on the bulb? (see pic 1). I also want to replace the bulbs behind the speedo/fuel gauge etc. with LEDs but have two questions: 1) How do I get access to the bulbs? I've got as far as the 4 screws that hold the speedo in place but cannot get it off as there is something attached to the back (I assume it's the odometer) which doesn't have as much give as the wires (see pic 2).

Any help with this would be much appreciated.

Al.

Re: changing dash bulbs to led bulbs

Ok, got the bulbs out of the buttons so no worries there, but still can't figure out how to get at the speedo lights. Any clues?

Re: changing dash bulbs to led bulbs

the speedo cable is holding the cluster in.reach behind(unplug the connectors to the side) and then around the big cable is a metal sheath.
there are 'fingers' on it you pull to pop the cable off

Cheers Custard, I'll give it a go. I dont't suppose while we're on the subject that you know which LED cluster from ultraleds will replace the big bulb that I expect to find behind the speedo?

Thanks again,

Al.
