    not really no.

    i know i can change the bulbs for the heater unit but i know that the speedo is a MISSION ! They are small and i mean minute leds and alot of them. My uncle used to do the boards in cb's etc years ago and he said that without specialist tools and a STEADY hand you will not do it.

    So i think unless taken to a pro and pay money for a small change then no sadly.

    WelshC2, have you changed your heater control bulbs before? Are they easy to access once the stereo and bin is out? One of the bulbs on mine has developed a life of its own and turns off and on of its own accord

    cheers

    Yes you can but by the sounds of it there is a slight short between the bulb and wiring, like its touching now and again. To get to it take out the d.din part then unscrew and pull it out then theres two bulbs that twist and turn

    I aint started on my interior as of yet mate.

    But if you want to you can spray some interior parts as they do clip off, if i was to spray interior parts i would look at :

    Air vents
    centre console clock
    speedo surround
    part around the handbrake
    door pulls

    They are items that can simply pull off as for the air surrounds buy them off flea bay
    centre

    cool man, so does that just release the bulb tree with the bulbs on it or does the entire heater control section come out?
