Hi,Just bought my daughter a 1998 Clio (s reg) and the speedo isn't illuminated. Anyone know a quick way of changing the bulb? Does the dash have to come out?

Hi are you sure its the bulb and not the fuse if so its only the speedo unit to come out no need to take the dash off you may have to take some parts of the dash out to allow the speedo unit to come out so you can replace the bulb i hope this helps

Speedo light

Is it only one bulb not operating or all of them - some Clio's have a dimmer switch for the dash lights which can become faulty. If its definitely the bulbs - you need to remove the cowling covering the dashboard display - there are a number of torx headed screws which hold it it in - can be quite fiddly work. If you need to go in that far my advice is to replace all the bulbs (they are quite cheap) because as soon as you replace one the others tend to fail soon after. Hope this helps!:)

Hi, It is just the speedo bulb so it looks like the dash out (not til weekend)I have been told that on this model the bulbs are not changable but are leds soldered into the panel so you have to replace the whole thing.Anybody got any info on this?

Hi andy.ollie

Welcome to the forum.

I thought all backlight bulbs were filament type,but i will wait for one of the more experienced members to confirm that.

(All is not lost if it is led type...they can be replaced with careful use of a soldering iron).

:) :)
