2 questions - tail lights and odom EL

I have an EL. How do you get the back tail lights off to replace a blown bulb, i know their are two screws but its still bolted on, inside i think.

Second, my odometer light has faded to nothing, is there a fuse or something i can trouble shoot this with,

Thanks mike

The bulbs come out from the back, no need to remove anything. Turn bulb holders anti-clockwise to release.

can't help with the other one.

nah you dont do it from inside the boot, you do it from outside where the tail light is.. you need to move this to the side and you will see the lights behind that

odom will just have a blown globe, which is a matter off pulling out the ashtray surround to get to the screws and remove the outer surround around the cluster and dash vents etc

Undo the four screws holding the cluster in and remove and unplug cluster. Replace bulb (use a genuine one from ford) and holder assembly which screws into back of dash. Refit and all done.

while your at it, convert your odom colour to red and maybe your dash to blue/red/green/yellow? :)

could be an idea!

I would like to be able to change the lights in my dash, going to go for blue, wouldnt even mind a carbon fibre dials thing to

Only problem is i am not confident enough to pull apart my dash and mess about under there, is there anywhere i would be able to take it to get it done, or anyone off these forums want to show me how to swap it all over ?

How much would it cost does anyone know ?
