E36 Dial lights - how do I change them?

Hi everyone

Got to say first this is a fantastic website! Does anyone have pictures or diagrams of how to remove the dash behind the steering (on a 1998 318is e36 saloon) to replace the bulbs behind the dials? I do not want to scratch anything by trying to prize it out.

cheers guys

Very simple, just undo the two little screws above the steering wheel holding the cluster in and pull that sucker out. There will be some jiggering to get it out from around the steering wheel but it'll come out without a problem. From there just unscrew the bulbs and replace as necessary.

I eat, sleep, & breathe BMW
