Thanks a lot!!!
Do you happen to know how to change the time in the clock for your land Rover? I cannot figure out how to and the wrong time drives me crazy.
just got a discovery td5 the clock light bulb gone thank you very much for this advise. I will put this to good use.
hello thanks for the vid, the cards released a clip top and bottom? and then you used the cards to pull the clock out? i will get the credit cards out tomorrow and give it a whirl, cheers
Grahame, really appreciate this - thanks!
Halford do one. part number 284. There are two levels of brightness. This is the brighter of the two
What are the cards you used to get the front off or the module out?
Thanks very much, very helpful. The service manual just informatively says 'remove clock' as the first step. That bit with the cards seems good. Now I just have to find a bulb…
Thanks...but what a fiddly palaver it turned out to be!!...getting new bulb twisted in position without damaging it a real pain!...still wouldn't have attempted it without your video..
Very good little clip of film. Thank You.
Can't find a replacement bulb... suggestions?
Many thanks. Spent half an hour, with a couple of credit cards, trying to wrestle the clock out by itself. Wasn't aware the central-locking switch came out with it and, thus, one of the tabs is behind the CL switch. :- FWIW, the best thing for inserting the bulb is a 6mm (IIRC) socket. Saves risking mangling up the bulb holder with a screwdriver or pliers.
