Question about 2002 Mitsubishi Montero Sport
The bulbs work when the ignition is switched on. There are two very small bulbs at the back of the compass and can be sourced from a main dealer for around £5 a pair. Part Number MMR283314. Don't forget to order two, they come in single packs. They burn out quicker than the normal bulbs as they are on, even when other dash lights are not. The main dealer will probably have to order the bulbs from Mitsubishi UK.
To fit: Prise off the top of the instrument cluster with a flat screwdriver. Remove two screws to release the pod from the top of the dash. Once free, unclip the wiring loom plug and socket.
Dismantle the instrument pod by removing four small screws. This will then allow you to remove a further six similar screws which hold the front 'glass' and instruments together.
Undo the wire connector on the compass. You may have to also take out the bulb holder from one of the guages to give you enough slack.
Once the wire is undone, you can slip the compass from the pod and you will see two deep holes in the back. Use a flat screw driver to reach down into the holes and engage the slots on the back of each compass bulb holder.
Turn the bulb holder a few degrees to release and withdraw.
Reassemble by reversing these instructions.
