I've managed to change the MFD and get that nice and blue but I am having some probs with the bulbs that light up air vent dials.

Ive got it hanging out as much as poss but im still struggling to get at them and when I do they dont seem to be budging.

Im following cobras tutorial but the pics arent working for me so im not sure. Any help much appreciated. Dan

Remove the vents at the top. This gives you the room to get them out. The vents have two torx screws and held on by clips around the edge.

The big plug in the middle needs to be removed, by unclipping either side and pulling, then the black bar holding the bulbs in should come out with a bit of force - you need to bend it some to get it uncliped. Its easy without the vents in the way.
