First, not to insult you, but have the new bulbs on hand before you begin, and do all bulbs while you have it apart.Tilt the steering column down in order to gain the necessary clearance to remove the instrument panel cluster trim plate. Remove the two screws that secure the instrument panel cluster trim plate. Disengage the two lower clips (hidden) Gently remove the instrument panel cluster trim plate from the instrument panel assembly. Remove the three screws which secure the instrument panel assembly, pull out the assembly carefully. Mark the the 4 electrical connectors where they connect to the cluster assembly so that you remember which connector went to which socket Disconnect the 4 electrical connectors from the cluster assembly Remove the instrument cluster assembly Remove the instrument cluster retainer with the instrument cluster lens attached from the instrument cluster case by releasing the 8 locking tabs. Remove the cluster bulb socket from the instrument cluster case by turning in a counterclockwise direction. Remove the old bulb from the socket and replace the bulb.
