When I first bought the Espace a couple of months ago, some tell-tale bulbs were not working so I decided to 'give it a go' without any real knowledge of what I was doing.
When I put it all back together, sods law came into effect and I realised that some of the backlight bulbs had blown
So today I proceeded to replace these and took a few pics hoping it would help others (sorry about the picture quality - they were taken on my mobile).
So, here it is - the unlit bits of the display:
Firstly, you need to remove the dash mounted speakers. The grilles can be pulled upwards carefully:
Then, you need to remove the speakers themselves which are held in place by three torx screws each:
And then disconnect the speaker cable:
Repeat this for the other speaker.
With the speakers completely removed, you should now be able to lift the top fascia away. To do this, lift at one speaker end and gently pull it upwards to that the three pop thingys (like those that hold the door card) are release from the top of the display. Then lift the fascia upwards and towards you. You will need to slightly angle the fascia to get it out:
With the fascia moved out of the way, all that remains is 5 more torx screws - the locations of which can be identified from the photo's below:
Middle of the display:
You can now gently lift the display out but be careful of the cables behind it. I did not remove any connectors as the bulbs are fairly easily accessible without disconnecting anything any further:
I knew I needed the wedge type bulbs, but I wasn't sure what rating. I used 2.6W, but for anybody else wanting to do this, the bulbs you need are 2.2W.
With the bulbs replaced and everything tested (I learnt from last time!), everything can be put back together in the reverse order of removal.
There you go, the finished result
Start to finish, the job took about an hour, unlike the first time. Hope this will help others
