Dashboard removal (speedo dials) Photo guide

Postby Mystery Machine » Mon Feb 26, 2007 10:10 am

To remove the main speedo dials, follow these step by step photos :wink:

This is useful if you need to change any of the bulbs on the speedo dials.

Undo the two crosshead screws with a short (stubby) screwdriver.

Remove the brake reservoir cover on the end of the dashboard and undo the screw inside. Also remove the 'knob' on the end of the vent lever.

Using a thin flat blade screwdriver, lever out the Hazard Light/Rear Wiper switch panel. Remove the two switches from the wiring loom then remove the screw hidden beind. You can now remove the dashboard surround.

Undo the four screws on the instrument binnacle and pull the binnacle forward carefully.

From behind the binnacle (space is limited!), you'll see four wiring connectors and the speedo cable. Carefully unplug the connectors and unclip the speedo cable. The binacle is now free and can be removed for changing the bulbs.

Simply pull the whole speedo assembly up and over the steering wheel and there you have it.....(you may have to put the steering wheel on the lowest height setting for this)

Refitting is the reverse of the above - just be careful when putting the plugs back on! :wink:

If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to ask! :D
