Re: centre console bulbs

does the whole dash need to be removed to replace the heater bulbs?

Just tried removing the stereo surround and found that I can reach the bulb for the temp control (located below the dial) but I cant get the bulb out, so then I tried removing the steel that holds the heater control in place it wouldn't come out without removing the dash so I bent it up over and pulled the heater controls forward and still cant get the bulbs out as there is not enough room to either get hold of it or get a pair of thin nosed pliers in.

Its worse for the bulb behind the air direction dial which is located above the dial as there is no room at all and the wire is already pulled tight.

I've gave up unless someone can do a guide with photos or has link to one, bare in mind my car is MY99 a late UK turbo classic.

thanks anyway.
