Smile Removing '99 Clio II Dash to get at backlights

Finally I have succeeded! What joy!

1 There are three screws on the dash in a small "trench" at the front near the windscreen.

2 two screws on either side of dash one above fusebox-(which found by opening passenger door & looking at side of dash) & other at same position on drivers side.

3 Two screws to release steering wheel shroud.Located on underside of steering column-closest to wheel itself.
Gently lift off shroud.

4 Remove door trim from 'A' columns-these are the column on either side of the windscreen going to the roof(I didnt know until I looked it up!)
Insert screwdriver behind trim inside top of column & lever trim to free from clip with which it is attached to column.
Pull trim vertically to remove entirely.

5 Remove 2 screws now visible on either side of instrument panel (after removing steering column shroud)

TA DA-slide dash off!!

Clock/Radio dislpay now accessible -TWO bulbs.

hopefully pix to come too.
