Ok, well I'vce answered the 1st question myself. It was pretty straightforward if you know what you're doing.

I wanted to change all the bulbs 'just in case' but discovered that the larger bulbs were 3.2W (I think) and the ones I had were 5W. So I just changed the ones I had to and hoped for the best.

Switched the ignition on and... yes you guessed it, two of the larger backlight bulbs stopped working! I have to source the right bulbs now but am wondering if 5W ones would be ok? Any idea what wattage the backlight bulbs really are (can't remember now but I'm sure they were 3.2W).

Will do a 'How To' next time I open it.

By the way, I found two Cobra devices under the dash... I gather this is something to do with the alarm. One has some sort of 'sensitivity' button on it.... is this standard stuff?
