First you need to remove the dash assembly. On the back will be a teist lock socket for each bulb, remove the socket, pullout bulb, push in new bulb.

Remove the screws and hardware that secure the dash and instrument panel to the car. Once the dash is open, replace the burnt out lights with new ones.

Basically all you have to do is remove the gauge cluster and take the bulb housing out to change the bulbs. Not knowing what year it is I can't in depth any farther about how to remove the gauge cluster out.

First you will need to remove your instrument cluster.Remove the trim piece(s) around the cluster,then remove the screws holding the cluster in place.You may have to undo the speedometer cable if you have a mechanical cable,to be able to remove cluster far enough to access the bulbs.

Look for plastic covers, these hise the screws, remove the screws to get into the dash, then replace the lights.
