Re: Heater dial light
To get the heater controls off its both the centre panel that the heater controls are mounted in and the whole centre console and switches around the gear lever / handbrake that have to come out. That said it is pretty easy to do. The centre console has bolts beneath the ashtray and a one of the switches it also has two screws covered by carpet in the footwell. The centre panel has screws in the centre vents, heater controls and bottom front that have to come out. ITs all a doddle to remove - and I'm a numpty with tools - I just hope your P1 isnt like mine with stupidly short pieces of wire leading into the vent / AC button control switches.
If in doubt do a search on here and you will find a pretty good description of how to remove the bits 'n bobs.
