325i - '88 - location of dash lights

I'm new to the forum and will probably ask questions that have already been answered here so please bear with me.

I have an '88 325i and I am in the process of going through it changing out control arms, recoating wheels, new brakes, recovering front seats, etc.

While I have the seats out I know I have some burnt out dash lights but have not been able to find any diagram that shows me the location of all the lamps.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Jake

On most cars dash lights are in the dash (j/k) All kidding aside try RealOEM.com look up your year, model, etc and they have good exploded diagrams.

If its the instrument cluster, there are good threads here that describe how to get to them. I just got all new bulbs (three different kinds and 13 in all) from Pelican for less than ten bucks. What started my whole thing was my odo quit, so I needed to replace the gears in it. As long as I've got the cluster out, I decided to replace bulbs and I got new batteries for my SI board, too. I'm putting it all back in tomorrow.

If it's the lights in the OBC, there is a white light bar that Bavauto has.
