Cheers mate, I already knew about the speaker/grill situation, I just wasn't sure if you could access the overhead bulbs from there. I changed it no worries and am now painfully aware of how late I am getting to work each day. It can be tough to gauge the time when you live in Iceland in the winter. A big thanks also to Bj=F6rn Envall for making it so simple. I remember it was a nightmare changing the globes on my old Ford Falcon's dash.
