Hello Keithlfc,


There were several different displays fitted to the C3, you say yours is a 'clock', so there is no trip display, temperature, just the time? A picture of it would help.

Some displays have lamps in, more than one though, sometimes 3 lamps.

There are fuses,

but each fuse that links to the clock also links to some other dashboard part, so with a blown fuse, expect other dashboard lighting to be off when it should be on.

Well the light is not illuminate but the time is working just need to know where the bulb or fuse goes it only shows time it s got two buttons one for the hour and one for minutes it's in middle of dashboard how can I send u a photo of it
The bulb is going to be directly behind the clock, take the clock out to get to it.

There isn't a fuse just for the clock light, but if you want to check the fuses, they are to be found in the glove box - rather well hidden.

This is the sort of thing you will expect to find if you remove the clock/display from the dashboard.
C3 Dash Display removed
C3 Dash Display removed
To get the display out to replace the lamps, firstly remove the binnacle from the dash, its only clipped in and just needs a good tug in the upward direction to release it.

A video to show how to remove the binnacle
This will reveal two T20 Torx headed screws (use a T20 Torx drive drive) to remove them to allow the clock or display to be removed from the car. There is a plug to disconnect from the display that carries power and signal if you want to get the best access to the lamp holders.

The lamps are in holders that need a quarter turn to release from the display, then the lamps then pull out from the holder.
Dash display clock trip lamp removed.
Dash display clock trip lamp removed.
These are the lamps that are often fitted. If you change one, change them all.

These are the lamps you need 12v 1.2w for trip or clock display.
