    Default Dashboard screen backlight

    Hi all,
    Last night I got in my car, turned the lights on and the lights on the dashboard screen failed to turn on.

    The screen itself is functioning fine, in the daylight I can see that it's fine.

    I'm guessing that it's the bulbs of the screen itself that have stopped working, unless it's a fuse. Does any have any ideas?

    If I do need to change the bulbs, how would I do this?

    Thanks!

    If its the time/stereo bit what display do you have as it will depend what one you have if they have bulbs or leds etc.

    Yeah, I'm on about the time/stereo screen.
    I'm not sure how I can find out if mine uses bulbs or leds but it's an 03 plate 2.0DTI if that helps.

    Is there any guides on removing this as I've had a look and couldn't find any way!

    There are 3 bulbs, in little green holders, dunno the name tho

    One of mine blew recently so i just went to the scrappy and picked up another for £5. Its an easy switch and you shouldnt need the code. essentially unscrew the centre vents, pull the section out, unscrew the clocks and unplug them and then to fit, do the reverse.

    Have a look at the various 'how to fit LED lights' HowTos - they cover replacing pretty much every bulb or LED in the interior of the car.

    Most of the backlighting is LED rather than bulbs, so it's rare for them to fail. More usually it's a loose connector if you lose backlighting

    Thanks for the help guys.
    I've got the screen out and the 3 bulbs are all shot.

    The bulbs look like this (the one on the right)
    http://www.12v.org/faq/c4/images/aud..._lights_08.jpg

    On the bottom it says OSRAM 12V 2.0W, I've tried looking on ebay but can find none, I also tried my local Vauxhall dealership but their parts department is closed.

    Any idea where I can find some replacements?
