How do you get to the bulbs to change them? You have to remove the dash to get to them. You're gonna *love* this. The below reference to left/right assumes a UK car (with the steering wheel on the right hand side). If not UK car, change right for left. With your right hand, feel under the bottom edge of the dash just to the right of the steering column. There's a screw head. This is one of 4 screws which run bottom-top holding the dash in. Two of those screws, to the left of the steering column are hidden under the top of the centre console. So that will need to come out first. I'm not going to go through the whole procedure (it's all in the Haynes anyway), but a couple of points: 1. The long screws are all different lengths. Note which one came out of which hole (they are also marked with grooves to indicate their position). 2. When removing them/reinstalling them, be careful not to break one of the plastic tabs which they go through. 3. When you pull the dash forward, the heater control rod will become detached. You will need to reattach this in order to regain control over your heater. -- Grunff
