  1. Basically all i want to do is remove the bulbs on one of my dashboard
    lights, which is working only intermittantly. How do i go about getting
    behind the speedo display to the bulbs...

    If memory serves correctly, first remove the steering column shroud. this is
    held in place by some screws underneath, and 2 facing you that you can only
    get at by turning the wheel and removing the blanking pugs.

    then the lighting switch needs removing. this should just pull out, but may
    be a bit tight. the whole assembly of rotary switch, dimmer, headlight
    dipper and fog switches comes out as a lump.

    you also need to pull out one of the 2 centre air vents. problem is, I cant
    remember which one. bt all this will reveal the securing screws for the
    plastic surrounding the panel. remove all these, and the panelling, which is
    in 2 pieces.

    now you should be able to locate the instrument panel screws. remove these,
    ease forewards and unplug wiring from rear. 2 plugs, 1 each side.

    remove instrument cluster.

    good luck
