a class 170 CDI the instrument cluster works fine but the central window which shows the mileage , clock temp etc is unlit.
I can hardly see the information and was wondering if this is lit by a bulb or if the readout is broken and the cluster needs replacing / mending ?

There is a huge difference in the cost of a new bulb circa £1 to a new cluster at £1k

There are four different types of bulb in the cluster ranging from 1.2watt to 1.5watt and also green or colourless a chassis number might help but the only other way would be to take it out and go to the dealer for them to match it up
