Yes, you need T5 1.2W or 286 bulbs.

They are usually wedged into the small plastic holders that you twist out to change.

My relative is selling her 2009 Exclusive diesel with the full electric panoramic roof - they loved it, but have now got a new C5 Aircross. I've just replaced a load of dashboard and climate control panel bulbs - so that's how I know :-D

Cruise control:

1) On the stalk, make sure the wheel in the middle (1) is scrolled up to 'ON'

2) Cruise will only work in 4th gear or higher and at speeds of about 25-30 MPH or higher, but I would say a min of 30 MPH from experience.
3) Get to the speed in 4th or 5th you want then press on button '2' or '4' to set the speed.

4) The speed can be increased using '4' or decreased by pressing '2'.
5) Once you press the clutch or the brake pedal it will be deactivated automatically.
6) it can be resumed or paused by pressing the end button (once you are in the right gear and min speed of course).

Be aware that if there are any engine fault codes showing, some of these will cause the engine management to disable the cruise function until the underlying problem is fixed. :wink:
