Are yours burned out?

You need to pull the knee board and gauge bezel before you can get the cluster out.

I hope you do them all. Otherwise the color will not be the same.

Why not just replace all your bulbs with LED's? if you search you can find the how-to and it takes 8-10 led's...

I have done that.

If I were to redo it I would paint it and use white leds.
