95 850 cluster lights

Post by billy » Sat Nov 20, 2010 5:05 pm

I've got a bad light on my instrument cluster / part that shows fuel guage, far side is somewhat darkened, can these be reached and changed easily, without ripping out the whole cluster?

I don't think so. The only way is to remove the cluster I believe. I did it over the summer. It isn't a bad job at all. Maybe 1 hour total.

This is one of the main bulbs, it is a standard 194 bulb. You do need to remove the cluster to get to it.

Yes and No. Some can be changed from Below, but most bulbs need to be done with the Dash Trim removed. Actually it is very easy.

But you need to read this DIY very carefully. I wrote this last year for my 1998 V70:
