Hi can anyone tell me if i can just swop the dash clock bulbs for blue ones, or is there a coating on the clocks that need removing. It's a zaf 1.6L 16v comfort. on a 51 plate.

cheers

I'm suprised no one has answered this question. I've not done it myself but you can buy a blue LED kit from crazy LEDs.

Here's the link https://www.crazyleds.co.uk/product.php?productid=94&cat=39&page=1

says something about some models having orange filters inside LCD displays.


Hope this helps bud!

Here's a problem. how the hell do you actually get the dash loose. My odometer and trip have gone off so I suppose I'll have to replace the unit, must be available on Ebay etc. But how do you get behind the thing to get at the bits?

I spootted a small removable panel at either end of dash, where door closes over it. But guess there must be loads more and the st.column probably needs dropping too. We don't have these problems on my 1951 Jowett Javelin!!!! - just grovvel on floor and you're under rthe dash! I am in north Leeds just off A61

Cheers

ok fella there are 7 screws in the dash surround

3 in top of the surround near the clocks 1 on left near the light switch 1 under the fuse cover then there are 2 on the right side of the steering wheel have a feel around under the lip of the dash surround


you will to take out the stereo to mate and undo the ash tray screw is under neath it and then the heater surround should unclip then it all should come out

If i remember correctly there are a couple of hidden screws. Two are behind the air vents. You can see the one behind the middle air vents above the stereo. You then need to pop out the top part of the air vent on the far right of the dash to get to another. I think there is also one screw behind the headlight switch.

I think they vary because i took my dash out last year hoping to change it all to blue but the trip meter and clock display have an orange film across them meaning blue is impossible. Around 2003/4 i think they changed, don't quote me though.
