Hi guys hoping someone can advise,

i noticed on wednesday night that my speedo / fuel display was going dim and flickering a bit
it works fine then dims down flickers then comes back on so im guessing a loose connection or solder or something daft....
anyways can someone guide me on how to remove the trim / dash easily to get to the back of the display to attempt a fix please
cheers

Hi

When you get the Speedo out, the C3 Speedo topic may help show you what to expect to find in the inside.

Thank you so much you guys are stars,
The electrical connector was slightly loose so hopefully problem solved, if not i will tuck a piece of paper in to secure it more.
Thanks again
