Dashboard Bulb Gone


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. Seasons greetings to all.

The light behind the oil pressure guage has failed on my 996 C2 Cab. It sort of died last week and with a careful placed thwack (thanks Batman) it came back on, but has now died again.

No amount of Arnie like treatment will persuade it to come back on - so I fear it needs to be replaced.

Two questions.....

1. What bulb do I need?

2. How do I get at it without dismantling the whole of the front of the car. There is a speaker above the area where you might think it would be possible to access the back of the guages - is this the way in?

Thanks as ever to everyone who takes time to read this and reply.

PS Car is still for sale (in UK).

No sensible offers will be refused.

John,

Here are a couple of snapshots of a PDF repair manual I have. The factory parts catalog lists three bulb types for the dash board. A 3 watt (999 631 304 90) a 1.5 Watt (999 631 303 90) and a 1.2 watt (999 631 302 90). Hope this helps. These are for the US/Canada manuals. I don't think I have access to the ROW manuals.
