    Hi again ,
    I posted this a few days ago and a couple of guys suggested
    prying out the panel with a screwdriver...........

    " The bulb/s have gone behind the led display on my Digital Climate
    Control , can anybody help by telling me how to remove the panel so I can
    get to the bulbs to replace them , my local Peugeot dealer was a waste of
    time , said "you'll have to book it in" .
    Car is a 97 406 GLX diesel est ."

    ................I tried with a wide flat screwdriver but the panel didn't
    want to budge , it sounded like it was going to break !!. Are you sure there
    aren't any screws or clips that have to be released or am I just not prying
    hard enough ? ;) .

    Hi Ron

    Its held in place with 4 screws, 2 top and 2 at the bottom.
    You have to remove the radio to get access to the lower 2.
    For the top, remove the radio display and the blank plate to the left of
    The radio display sometimes prises out but on mine the bezel started to come
    off, so I had to remove the vents above, this allows you to get your hand
    behind the radio display and push it out.

    Hope this helps

    Many appologies Ron, I was thinking of the radio display, not the climate
    control. For this, you have to remove the radio display (by prising it
    out!), then the end 'half' button, behind them there's 2 screws, remove
    them. Then remove the radio and there's 2 screws behind there. Then the
    whole middle climate control section should come out easily. If I were you,
    doen the the amount of potch it is, I'd change all the bulbs. I did, as I
    was determined the lot weren't coming out again,
    Sorry for the original confusion,

    Don't forget to use Torx Screwdrivers, any other screwdriwers will
    damage the screws and you won't be able to remove the panel
    without damaging it.

    Good luck.
