    Default 406 odometer / tripmeter no display

    My 406 (98 D8) lost its odometer / trip distance display. It is the one that is in the bottom of the speedo dial (speedo still works fine).

    Just went blank. Checked the fuses, there's no indication that this is controlled by a fuse. Could be a backlight, but did not get that impression, as even with the parking lights on, there is still no display visible, even by residual light.

    There's a couple of threads from last year where people have fixed their speedo by resoldering dodgy connections, but as above, there's nothing wrong with the speedo, just the odo.

    Could be a multitude of things - first start with the globes behind the cluster!

    For future reference, that is what it was - the globes.

    When it happened it was a really bright sunny day, which drowned the display. After posting I thought to check it at night. All the display is there, just almost invisible.

    Will have a go at changing the bulbs, not had to remove this cluster before.

    Drop the steering wheel to the lowest position - its just a series of torx screws holding it all together! The A/C shroud comes with it
