Hello fellow avid car restorers, we have an Opel Kadett currently being revived for our son and have reached a point where we could do with your help Very Happy
The dashboard light is not working and we are finding it very difficult to get the cover off to reach the bulb, the fuses are in working order. Do you have any possible solutions?
Thanks a lot !

Welcome to the forum.

I don't know much about that particular make/model, but if you're able to put up a few photos hopefully some advice will be forthcoming.

Hi
Don't know if the dash was exactly the same (but on the other side if LHD) but it is supposed to be the same as an Astra mark 1.

Is there a dash light switch anywhere?

I've talked to quite a few people who are new to owning a Vauxhall Viva HC who have "fix the dash lights" on their to-do list for the new car, only to be reminded that there's a slider switch underneath the edge of the dash that turns them off, and often someone has caught that.
