Minor problem, major nuisance. My 2000 Accord EX's clock light is out. I have no idea how to get to the bulb. Is this too tricky for a novice like me?

Mmmm...you have to remove the dash to get at it, don't you?

My aunt owns a 98 LX sedan, so that makes me an expert Big grin
(like the 14 year old - well my dad's brother is a pilot for United so I know all about them)

I dunno, it's probably a real pain to remove the dash.

Just a thought here but have you checked for a fuse for that clock light?

I've been a Toyota parts salesman for twenty years. I can assure you as someone who does this kind of work on my own car, you are fully capable. The best thing to do to get started is go to your local Honda dealer. Since almost all dealers now use some sort of PC based catalog, at should be very simple for them to print out for you the page that shows the breakdown of that part of your dash. Even though these parts diagrams are meant for cataloging purposes, and don't have disassemble instructions, it should give you the basic idea for which pieces of dash have to come out to get to the device you need to.
Not to discount MxCtlr's advice, but usually a fuse will carry current for more than one thing in that area. If it was a bad fuse, there would be more than one thing inoperative. Still worth checking, though, just as he said. BTW, how old is the car? Does it have an analog clock? Most clocks have been digital for many years now in all makes.

Nope, you don't have to take the whole dash out. I used to have a 98 Accord EX which was basically the same as the 2000 model.

According the the Haynes manual, use a taped screwdriver to pry the clock bezel outwards. Pull the clock bezel out enough to disconnect the electrical connector from the clock and hazard warning switch. To remove the bulb, depress it and turn counterclockwise.

Unfortunatley it didn't say what part number the bulb is.

hmmm

Now you've got me wondering if I can replace the bulb (or faulty wiring) in the dash of my Camry. The light behind my HVAC dials is out. At night it doesn't bother me, but it'd be nice if they were lit. But I think you definately have to take out part of the dash to do that.

What year is your Camry? I'll look into it if you like.

1995. Thanks.

We had a set of Toyota's official repair manuals for the Cressida, but the Camry isn't old enough yet to really need them. Nothing major's gone wrong yet at all, and we're the third owners of the car.
