After 5 years and 70,000 miles, something has finally failed on our Toyota Yaris - the bulbs that should act as the 'lights on' indicators on the instrument panel have failed!
Does anyone know how to get at these? Is there a Haynes manual for the Yaris, or perhaps they haven't bothered to produce one since nothing seems to go wrong....
Any help would be appreciated.
>>Is there a Haynes manual for the Yaris
Yes. Haynes online says
Toyota Yaris Petrol (99 - 05) T to 05
1.0 litre (998cc) & 1.3 litre (1299cc) petrol
Does NOT cover T-Sport, Free-Tronic/MMT clutchless transmission, features specific to Verso models or Diesel models.
I've got the Haynes manual, and it does describe how to get at the bulbs.
Basically you pull off the plastic surround to get at the instrument panel, then remove the instrument panel by unscrewing four screws and disconnecting some wiring connectors. Then it looks quite easy to get at the bulbs from the back of the panel.
I think the key is detaching the plastic surround from the dash - once you've done that it should be fairly straightforward.
Thanks very much for your help, both of you.
Looks like it shouldn't be too complicated to get at the bulbs, so I'll have a go this weekend. My 'other' vehicle is a Citroen ZX, which is a nightmare when it comes to anything in the dash area, and has put me off trying!
