I would go ahead and change all of the lights while you are in there. Will cost another $8 (tops) if you get the bulbs from the stealer but you won't have to worry about it again. Good luck and be careful!! I paid a mechanic to do it on my last car as I didn't have a tilt or telescoping wheel and $50 labor wasn't worth the risk to me.
The odometer light on my E34 540i quit working yesterday. I cranked up and
noticed I couldn't read the total miles or the trip miles either one.
Turning on the headlights doesn't help, either. Everything else on the dash
display still works fine. Is there a light bulb in there that's probably
burned out? I can faintly see the numbers if there is a strong light on the
dash, but I can't quite make them out.
