Suggested Solution

Picasso Instrument Display (Changing Bulbs)

The centre plastic oval has three small slots in its upper lip which are used to ease this bit carefully out, using an appropriate tool (use small flat screwdrivers or similar).
The complete module is retained by two Torx screws and two spring clips which pull away with the module. Then unclip the two module plugs, first releasing the retaining clips. the module can then be worked on, on your lap. The lamp holders are removed with a 1/4 anti-clockwise turn using pliers - 9 for the back lighting and millions for the warning lights. Good lamps should read about 13 ohms across the terminals.

Halfords sell the lamps (part No 286) at 99p each.

Reverse procedure to put back again, then reset clock, date etc...
