Dashboard backlight
Hello all - Berlingo and forum newbie here.

We just got ourselves a 2007 1.6 HDI 92 Desire. What a great car.

There's something curious about the dashboard backlighting. On key turn all the warning lights show as normal for a few seconds. When they all go out the battery light remains on, but very faintly. When the side lights go on, the same occurs to the brake warning light to the left of battery light. Then, when other lights illuminate, we can just make out the oil light to the right of the battery light. Weirdly, the battery light remains faintly visible even after the car is locked up and the orange digits of the odometer have gone off.

I've checked the brake fluid (normal) and the car starts without any problem. Could this be a simple case of light spillage behind the instrument panel or should I suspect something more sinister?

Also, we're missing a front foglight. Citroen has quoted me a total of £176 for the lamp, the surround, painting the surround and VAT. And that's without fitting it. Anyone know where I can source a cheaper alternative - and are they straightforward to fit?
