Dash lights

Hey guys. I've got a hj ute, and i want to change the light that brightens up my dash. Its really dull and can hardly see anything at night. Can someone tell me the process in doing this? Do i have to pull the whole dash out??

cheers

The Bulbs could be covered in Dust making them dim. Only dis-assembling the Dash and cleaning them will help in that case.

The Bulbs could be dim because they are not getting enough Voltage. Further info here ... http://holdenpaedia....

The Rheostat in the Headlight Switch could be burned and in need of replacing. Further Headlight Switch info here ... http://holdenpaedia....

Yeah if you turn it clockwise, the dash lights dim and if you turn it all the other way the interior light comes on. You can get to the lights on the back of your guages without removing them on the hz style dashes (unsure on the hj though) but its very difficult especially on the speedo. If your after brighter dash lights id go LED lights, theres a guide in reapers shed i think you can buy LED lights wich mount straight in.
EDIT, http://gallery.oldho... Thats reapers shed with the LED dash lights
