    From my South African buddy......hope this is useful to you guys....thanks audise

    Sounds like it is just globes that have gone. you will need to take the instrument panel out to get in there. It is just a couple of screws to take off.
    1. first take off the top cover of the steering wheel covers. there are two screws, accessible from underneath.
    2. there should be three screws holding the lower dashboard/instrument cover, take this out.
    3. there are three bolts holding in the lower part of the instrument cluster, remove these and you will then be able to pull the instrument cluster out. it is quite a tight fit, so you will have to pull on it. as you pull it off you will have to disconnect the various wiring plugs.
    4. once you have the instrument cluster out, it is easy enough to replace bulbs on the back. they just turn/clip in.
    5. The auto box position globe is inside the position indicator unit. you will need to unscrew the unit and take it apart to change the globe. you will also need a soldering iron.
    have a look at this URL for info on how to go about it:
