The instrument cluster in your Corsa is a key electrical component that provides information such as your current speed and fuel level. If your cluster malfunctions, you should remove it and repair or replace it.
You can obtain tools as well as replacement bulbs and a replacement cluster from your local auto parts store.
Open the bonnet of your Corsa. Detach the negative battery cable with a wrench.
Locate the rubber trim on the dashboard that surrounds the instrument cluster. Use a Phillips screwdriver to remove the two screws that secure the trim. Pull the trim away from the dash.
