1993 325ic trip computer really dim

I have a 1993 BMW 325ic that I bought new. The trip computer went really dim last year. In the sun you can not see it at all. In the shade you can make out the numbers but I don,t think the numbers are light.
Are their and fuses or blubs that I can replace? Dave

This has to be the bulb which sits on the side of the unit.Its not the bulb at the back but at the side . You need a pair of thinb nosed pliers to extract it.

Re: 1993 325ic trip computer really dim

can this be done on a 93 325i? because the dealer told me i need a new cluster, every thing works fine but it lights very dim, and some times light gets bright if i tap the dash.

Re: 1993 325ic trip computer really dim

Mine used to get back to bright sometimes but not lately. All the numbers diietch are dim. I tried to look for a whole cluster at bavauto.com but I could not find it there. Did I miss it? Dave
