Fist off, a parker light blew, which is fine (Still havent changed it though), next was my radiator light / sensor playing up now it just stays on all the time, then it was a light behind my odometer LCD display, now today on the way to work a light behind the Climate control has blow. All of this in about 2 weeks.

Is it hard to get behind the Climate Contro to change a bulb, and how do i get the CC out???

It is a 1998 AU Fairmont.

Cheers Guys

I think you pull the surround off from around the clock, then there is a screw in there, which releases the whole 'Message Display Center'. From there take a look at the back of it. I haven't had to do mine yet, but if its anything like my old EF (globe blew every 18 months), I'll be doing it very soon.

Got them out ok. There is only 1 screw holding the Climate Control in and only 2 Holding tye cluster in. A pretty big difference to the amount holding the cluster in in my old ea.
Now i just gotta get time to go to ford and buy new ones.
Thanks for the help.
