406 instrument panel bulb replacement

    Can anyone help re the removal of the instrument cluster from the dashboard
    of my 1999 406 2l HDI estate?

    The displays of total mileage and trip mileage have failed, and I assume
    this is probably a bulb failure behind the instrument panel.

    I can see three screws which appear to attach the black bezel to the
    dashboard, but so far have not attempted to undo them. There may be more
    screws I haven't yet found, and I don't know what sort of electrical
    connections are made to the rear of the panel (presumably one or more multi
    pin connectors?)

    Has anyone tackled this problem? I suspect the bulb is not too expensive
    but the labour cost of getting the dealer to do this job is something I'd
    like to avoid.

    Many thanks

    Yes it is a bulb behind the panel
    it is just 1 screw, then GENTLY start klikking out the bezel,
    start from the middle of the car

    the dealer takes half an hour, you could do it in five minutes

    i was talking out of my arse

    It is 3 torx (1.5) up in the bezel, then gently price it out
    then it is 4 torx 1.5 for the clock unit, then you have to find out
    how to GENTLY take out the klok as it is clipped in.

    Easy with the two connectors, you can lift the two levers on them and
    take out the whole unit

    when mounting the thing back take your time for the bezel, it is quite
    difficult in getting the air outlets with their valves back in place

    still it is just five minutes
