you will find that the plastic/electrical circuit that feeds the bulb is probably wrecked mate. Easiest fix would be getting another mfd from a scrappie, cost about a fiver when i replaced mine

or open the MFD and solder a new connection from the good bulb to the bad one.

thanks for that info lefthooker, i didnt have any solder so i pulled the leds apart and added a length of wire to each terminal and run it over to the same terminals on the bulb that was out, twisted them back in and pressed a button on the stalk and it lit up on both sides



1 fully lit MFD


any ideas what the little F is next to the time??

The little 'F' is normally down to the you having a aftermarket headunit fitted, removing the red/grey tracer wire from the back of the MFD will remove the 'F' from the display.
