The above is perfectly correct....
changing the bulb in the temp gauge is something of a pain....you need to take out the centre console, which is a time-consuming if relatively easy procedure......you need to remove the radio (and if you want to use it again you'll need the code, if its a standard unit), then remove two Allen screws that are at the top of the radio aperture, then remove the ashtray, then 2 screws holding the ashtray holder, and another 4 or so securing the console, including some under the gear lever gaiter - which just prises out......sorry to be a bit vague but I'm 12 miles away from my unit where I've got several consoles that I could check to confirm the detail. Once you've got the console free, there are 4 screws holding the gauge unit in place. After all that, I'd change all the bulbs in the unit - you don't want to be doing this again in another few weeks.
"Work the interior lights in auto" ? If you mean get the interior lights to work when the doors are open and go off when they are shut - its a setting on the switches on the light unit, right hand switch in the middle position IIRC.
Manuals are generally only available in Cd/DVD form - tho I think there is an online source - but they are generally only a few quid from Ebay sellers.
Hope some of that helps.
