Lightbulb Dash Board Lights

How do I replace lights in the dash board for the temp and fuel gauges and speedodometer?

are all the lights out? if so maybe you need to just brighten them with left **** coming out of the cluster, the thin one. if not it come apart like a clam shell. you have to be careful not to over tighten the screws on reassembly because the dash plastics are easy to break. there is a side panel on dash that needs to be removed, looks like big plastic flat head screws and the hood latch release. there is a screw deeply recessed into the lower dash panel on the front right, along with others that are easier to spot. mostly common sense. I didn't remove the steering wheel to remove remove the cluster. I loosened it and reached in behind and grabbed the light holder with an alligator clip to twist it out and replaced it the same way. or you can buy the special tool for that purpose. again, the plastics are very fragile.
