    Vectra 1.8Glsi 1997
    Noticed this morning that I can no longer see the numbers on my mileage &
    trip meter, tried turning lights on but still no luck. If I look closely I
    can see them just about, I presume their must be some kind of bulb behind
    the display that has probably blown! Has anybody ever replaced bulbs in the
    dash & what's involved or is it best left alone?

    Yeah there is a bulb, and it sounds as if has gone, however when the same
    situation happened to me I gave the dash a good thump and its been on ever
    since .

    TID. You need the Haynes Manual to see what is involved. A good site for
    info is It can be a little bit awkward trying
    to undo some of the screws ect but no pain no gain !!!! Test all your other
    bulbs if you go ahead I found the tenp/petrol not working.

    Thanks for the info, I will have to try & dig out my Haynes manual! I know I
    have one somewhere. I am not so worried about taking out the dash, its just
    the bloody airbag that puts the wind up me.

    you wont have to remove the steering wheel to remove the instrument cluster,
    in fact don't even attempt to, just adjust it so its on its lowest position.
    you may find the speedo cable a bit akward, little hands are helpfull.
