DURATION : Around 2 hours not rushing

CLOCKS

START

There will be 3 bolts under the steering wheel as arrowed




take them out



next you have 2 screws on the sides of steering wheel(you need to turn steering wheel 90 degrees to see these



once these 5 screws are out,you can take plastics off.REMOVE KEYS!!!




next you will have 3 bolts on the plastic covering the clocks as arrowed



remove these and take the plastic out



next you have 2 bolts and 1 clip holding clocks in,remove screws and push clip UP

RE-FIT DASH IN REVERSE ORDER AS TAKEN APART

MFD DISPLAY

START

push vents down facing ground like so



push flat small screwdriver in without scratching dash



pop them down,you will know when its done



prise the sides of each vent with the screwdriver
(be careful not to scratch dash)



pull vents towards you





inside there are 2 screws(1 in each vent)



remove these

pop mdf up



turn it round and fit new bulbs
(you can take lead out but i found it easier to use pliers)

LEAVE IT APART AS YOU NEED IT FOR HEATER PANEL TO BE LOOSE

-----------------------------------------------------------

CIG LIGHTER

START

4 screws on ash tray(1 in each corner)

remove these

disconnect ash tray and dissconnect the bulb

RE-FIT AS TAKEN APART

HEATER SECTION
(be patient with this as its the hardest bit)

START

with the mfd still off and the 2 top screw inside the vents undone

time to move on

take the little button off the heater panel



then the plastic section



you will see 2 screws behind



remove these

next is heater knobs

outside 2 just pull off



middle ones abit more tricky,place a flat screwdriver into gap and carefully prise it off ( dont snap the clip )



remove the hazard cover



the heater section should feel loose now :)

pull it out a little bit



and remove 3 clips near top



the heater panel is now FREE,be patient as it wont just come off in your hands.it will need abit of pulling and being careful will help



then you will see where the bulbs go



if you have bulbs there,they look like this



fit your new bulbs



then put dash back together
