Hi all new member here. I have a 1987 Passat 2.0 5cyl & i seem to be having an issue with the high beam blue light not working. There is power going to the cluster all the other lights are working ok. Is there a fuse or relay that does this light? Seems a bit of a pain taking off all the circuit board & stripping the clocks down

Also i have been told the 5cyl has the mpg metre top centre of the clocks which mine has'nt it's got temp gauge there. Would this possibly have the wrong set of clocks in it?

First posts normally go in introductions else you could get a free fix and we never see you again!!!

Check all wiring/connectors and the bulb.

Ah i didn't know about the introduction a new member but i'll have that in mind for next time.
I am going to post the clocks to a friend who is going to strip them down & replace all the leds. I'm hoping its just the bulb because all the others are working ok including the clock.
Thanks again for the info.
