I just bought 6x T5 Wedge Globes, thats what I mean they threw whatever in there. also Mucking around for hours with tiny screws removing the fascia and 23 year old plastic is not fun.

it's not hard to remove .... just fiddly removing all the screws [small?] & unclipping from the heater controls..... :roll: so you didn't read my link? as it then would not have had you tearing ya hair out :mrgreen:

you can also get T5/T10 in LED too. have put a few LED's in her BF & my BA. they work well using the right ones.

for something to winge about ..... some of the AU globes fitted to either the cluster or the heater controls [forgotten which :?: ] are connected to the male plug by winding the wiring around said plug!

Your right its not hard, just fiddly. I like others cant grasp the decisions the engineers made while building these f**k cars. why make it so impossible?

I went with the T5 LEDS. there a very small bulb. I might as well replace all 6 while Im there.

I laughed my a** off with AU quote, is like they want to f**k with your Head.

Edit**
