sounds like a faulty globe mate, pull it out and leave it plugged in and turn ignition and head light switch on and if there are not 4 lighting up then thats ur blown globe. 2 at bottom 2 at top and one in clock.

Sounds more like a faulty LCD. It's pretty common in the AU climate control and trip computers apparently.

IIRC there was a place that did repairs on them, but I can't remember or find the info.

It's probably easier and cheaper to grab one off Ebay anyways, if it's necessary.

its 1 screw and 2 plugs :)

just pull the little clock surround off... (from the left or right side, i cant remember)

make sure you get one from the right series,
AU1 only fits AU1 (Orange writing), AU2/3 are the same (Black font, white backlight)

Cheers Cam

ok mate well your in luck cos i bid on one of them and won it. i have one already and its been cleaned of filters as to be able to use any colour leds you want in it. i have red at moment. once it arrives would you like to buy it if its all working properly. i will check it in my car firdst to make sure all is good. how does that sound?
