Question about 1996 BMW 318
I have recently blown a number of lights in my dashboard instrument cluster, the thermostat light and now the odometer light has also gone, i am considerin changing all of them, is this an easy job to open it up and replace them, and are the parts readily available??
Well it depends if you can wiggle the cluster without removing the steering wheel.
There are 2 screws securing the cluster on the very top of the cluster dome.
After you unscrew those have to push the cluster in a bit and then wiggle it out, release the cables going to the cluster and see if it clears the steering wheel (having adjustable steering wheel helps a lot)
If you manage to get the cluster out the bulbs are easily replaceable, and can be bought at any decent car parts store.
Hope this helps!
