Instrument Lighting (Help)

Hi all,

I have a 1998 156 2.5 v6, and on the speedometer when i switch the lights on it appears to have a Bulb gone. Well the Question is how do l remove the Speedometer so i can replace the bulb? And also what kind of bulb is it?? Is it easy to replace??

Your advice is much appreciated.

Re: Instrument Lighting (Help)

There's a small screw in the top of the cowling. Remove that and pull the cowling out. Then it's held in with three screws. Pull on the gauge gently though as it has two electrical connectors on the rear. Also make sure the ignition is OFF before disconnecting/reconnecting.

Bulbs are 1.2w capless variety. Type 286 IIRC.

1 screw cowling, 2 screws guage, pull out the guage, 1/4 turn the offending bulb holder anti clockwise and swap bulb. Refiting is simply the oppostie of reverse.
