PEUGEOTLOGIC comment: This page is incomplete, we will be adding some information over time. To view the original version please refer to the PDF file. HERE
The author of this document talks about an LED, the panel is actually illuminated

LED stands for light emitting diode. The bulb is a traditional
small incandescent light bulb.

The whole panel before we start…

As time went by, the bulbs on the panel may fail and leave the controls in darkness. It is now our mission to replace the bulbs, which is not as difficult as one may think.

Open with a flat screwdriver from the right side as in the picture:

Now when the clock is out remove the right and left screw.

On most models you will find that the bulb is soldered into the holder. In these cases it will be best to replace the holder and the bulb.
