How to replace Dashboard light? (Gen2 MR2) 5 Years, 9 Months ago Karma: 58
Hi everyone, my dashboard light is really low and at night it's quite hard to tell how fast I'm going and know the exact rpm. I'd really appreciate if I could get some instructions and tips on how to replace the dashboard light (which I believe is behind the tachometer). I think it's a fairly simple job to do on my own, but then again some of you are more experienced and could tell me if a professional should be needed for this task or not.

Cheers

It's not too hard a job you just need a star head screwdriver, remove gear surround, radio surround and top and lower clock surround then there's just 4 screws holding clocks in their 501 sidelight bulbs in the dash lighting.

Excellent guys! The instructions from the MR2 UK forum seems to be as direct as possible so I will give it a try hopefully this weekend.

I thought I'd let you know that I was able to replace the dashboard lights with my brother's help last weekend without any headaches. The instructions were spot on and I can see how fast I'm going now at night
