Dash brightness, am I going insane???

Hi there,

So this is my second scoobie though had it for a couple of years now. and love it more than ever..
Anyway, I am 99.99% certain that my last Impreza Turbo2000 had a wheel under the dash somewhere that controlled the brightness of the dash illumination. Am I getting this confused with one of my other cars?
I could swear that my first scoobie did. That was also an MY99 though on an S Plate where my current is on a V-Plate..

Dunno I just think it had a little wheel under the steering column or there abouts..

cheers
Angelo

How big a job is it to remove the clocks, open them up and change the bulbs?

What bulbs are in there?

cheers
