    Hazard light bulb

    How do you gain access to the bulb inside the hazard light switch? Tried to get it out and couldnt see how the bulb comes out

    The front of the switch just pulls out - sometimes a gentle lever with a slim screwdriver helps.

    Think it's integral with the switch - I've never had to remove one so might be wrong. I've got one in at the moment for replacement front wheel bearings so I'll have a look later.

    Yup - looks like it's integral with the switch. Plenty at scrappies (or look on ebay) - but you don't really need the bulb anyway as the indicator lights flash on the instrument panel.

    Can't really change the bulb colour anyway. The bulb itself is bright white. It's the triangle lens that makes it red.
    Try some glass paint on it and see what that does.

    Not even going to bother now mate too much fuss id rather keep it white. Blue dash clocks going to go white soon too. Find myself struggling to read my speed with blue leds

    I had blue LED's in my last corsa that had black clocks and white markings. Current Corsa C has big white clocks and black text, so dont know what white LED will come out as.

    What clocks did you have that had blue LED?

    Ah. I used white LEDs like that and came out good. Thought blue would also. I got white clocks so don't know if it will be any good with either.

    I seem to struggle to notice numbers at a glance with blue leds and there not dull either. Just figured white would look cleaner. May get white dials at one point and try blue again see if its any better
