Hi All

I've been driving my sons Fiesta and this has a switch to dim or brighten the lights on the instrument cluster.

Does the 146ti have this too. I must admit that in 9 years I've never thought about this and whether the Alfa has this too.

So if so where is the switch smile.gif In my defence it was dark tonight when I tried to have a look!! I did look in the handbook but could not see it referenced in there?

Thanks
Mark..

do you know, Mark? I don't think I've ever thought about that!

I was about to say; 'sure!- it's on the right of the steering column!'

But- that's the low-beam load-compensator isn't it??

No, you cant adjust the brightness of the clusters etc if I remember correctly. They are naturally s**te. Hence I installed a custom wiring job with blue LED's back in the day on a few.
