Default Advice saught from a complete car thicko!

Hi there people....
I'm one of those sorta guys who have never been into cars in any great way,
and my knowledge is based around that I know they have 4 wheels, a colour
and cost a bomb to run!

I have a Honda Civic (Automatic) 1396 Engine, 1196 Make, 5 seater and the
main area where the digital clock resides, and under it the heater and air
dials sit, the bulbs have decided to die on me. Is there an easy way to
replace these bulbs or is it a complete strip job of the central divider to
get in to them?

I can't seem to find any information on this model to guide me, so I'd
appreciate any pointers you may have.

Cheers!

I advise you to check the fuses before you change out all of the bulbs.
There should be a guide related to the fuses on the little plastic door
that covers the fuse box. If you can find the exact fuse or fuses that
control the panel lights--change it even if it appears to be in perfect
condition. I recall having a fuse that appeared to be in perfect condition
but failed when I tested it with my electrical tester.
