    I have a 98 406 with a factory radio/cassette/cd I believe it's the 4050
    model. The problem is the display on the multi-function display has stopped
    lighting up. It works ok, you just about see it with the interior light on,
    or in sunlight but boy it's annoying. I presume there's a blown fuse or a
    weak connection somewhere? Any ideas?

  2. Carefully prize the front off, it's retained by lugs. You'll find two
    bulbs,[ ONLY AVAILABLE FROM A PEUGEOT DEALER !!!!], fitted into a small pc
    board. Cost about £1.56 each. Don't ask a dealer to it 'cos he'll charge an
    hours labour + + + , it takes ten minutes.

    They're surprisingly reasonable from the dealer. The nearest equivalent
    (which aren't suitable) are £1.99 from Halfrauds

  4. They are aren't they. My local Halfords didn't stock them anyway

    Yeah, very reasonable I thought that too........and your tip works perfectly
    so thanks for that...............However.........
    The display for the heater/air-con has now done exactly the same, I
    expect it's another pair of bulbs so no major problem. But isn't it a bit
    unusual for them all to go at almost the same time? Have I disturbed
    something maybe? And how do I get the front off the heater display?

    Actually managed to do it all on my own heehee

    Pulled out the radio after pushing long thin wire into retaining lug holes,
    that revealed 2 torx screws. Removed the multifunction radio display again
    and the cover plate from the other side of the hazard warning light switch &
    sports suspension switch, that revealed a further 4 torx screws. Undid the 4
    screws & the whole heater display/switch panel could then be removed. There
    are about 6 or 7 bulbs which light up the whole thing (switches as well as
    display) The central two are for the display.

    Incidentally.... the bulbs are pretty bog standard it seems, just need to
    put them in the Peugeot bulb holders. Bought 2 bulbs from local motor spares
    place (Webbs in Stevenage) for 99p including VAT Can you beat that??

    Thnnks for help anyway, hope this helps anyone else.

    Yes I can. I needed one for the clock and the repair man said: 'No charge.'
