heres how to change a side light,place either a lace or a piece of string against the front of the light and pull towards the back of the car,when it moves back just pull away from the car and itll pop out then just replace the bulb or the complete light.


First remove the screw at the top of the cowl.

then being careful pull the cowl towards u as it comes out there is 2 clips one either side and u will need to be careful incase u break them.

now remove the 2 screws holding the speedo or rev counter,be carful with the screws as they could fall and you will lose them in the dash.

now pull the speedo or rev counter towards u,being careful when pulling it out incase the screw lugs catch and break.

once removed just disconnect the wires by removing the plugs from the socket.

now you will need to remove the white or black backing plate from the speedo or rev counter to get at the bulbs unless u have got a really small pair of bottle nose dolphin piliers.

remove the back using a screwdriver being careful not to force it to much.

once the back is removed just change the bulbs and do everything in reverse to get it back together

First remove ur cd player from the dash.

Once removed ull see 2 screws under it and just remover these.

Next open ur ashtray and remove the screws in each corner and pull towards u.

Once its free just remove the wires from the socket.

Next do the same with the hazard light just pull it towards u and remove.

Remove the wires from the sockets.

lift ur gear gaitor and remove the 3 screws underneath.
.
Now remove the 3 knobs from the aircon dials.

now just pull the centre console away from the dash and all should be revealed.remove the screws to get at the 3 dials,once removed pull away from urself and remove the wires from the back of it.

Once removed just replace what lights need done and put it all back together in reverse.

If you just need to change the temperature or clock globes you should be able to get your arm up beside the glovebox and get the bulb carrier out. It might be a little easier with the radio withdrawn. You can see the red holder for the warning light, and the black holder for the night illumination on the temperature sensor. They twist out/in.
Here's what you should see when lying on you back in the passenger footwell.

kiwi_alfa, you just have a blown bulb.

Just follow the guide on how to remove the speedo, it's the same for the rev counter.

miximup, good work with the guide
