Hello, i've bought a Fiat tipo 1900 diesel with a digital dashboard, but
some of the leds behind it don't seem to give any light anymore. Does
anybody knows how to remove the dashboard in order to replace the
From what I can remember, it is not composed of discrete LEDs, but a
system of LCD filters that block light from a standard backlighting
There is a side strip on the dash that can be levered off which
exposes two screws. On the other side, close to the speaker, there
should be another two screws, possibly under the speaker cover.
Remove all four and the complete dash will come out. There are three
cable sockets behind which you need to squeeze your hand behind to
remove before the assembly is free to come out completely.
Once out, you should notice quite a collection of standard bulb
holders, the ones that locate with a quater turn and are capless push
in types. They light up everything, from the speedo to the temp
guage, etc. If part of your guage is poorly lit, then a corresponding
bulb will have blown. Some will have a green silicone cover which
gives the green colour (if you are particularly bored some day, go to
Maplins and get red or blue covers and give your dash a new colour!!).
Replace all that have blown and the dash will look the business.
