Speedometer bulbs

Post by ModestasL » Sun Aug 09, 2015 1:57 pm

Hello. I want to know how to replace the speedometer light bulbs. I mean not warning lights bulbs but speed/tachometer/fuel level/engine temp bulbs. I removed the speedometer and i don't see the bulbs. I only see warning lights bulbs.

Where is other? Maybe need to remove arrows and these papers? If yes, how correctly remove the arrows and these papers?

Isnt those 3 middle bulbs lights for speedo etc?

Its good to replace the whole set of bulbs so you dont have to open it again in month or two.

Do you mean these bulbs? Only a few bulbs can light all the speedo?

Its difficult to see which bulb relates to what so I shine a torch through the hole where I have removed the lamp and see what lights up.
