RPM gauge is out of light...any help?

So lately, my RPM gauge's backlight won't come on at night. The gas light is still on, so i'm guessing it's just a bulb that burnt out. I'm sort of OCD about that kind of stuff and I wanna replace it. Do I go in through the hood or do I have to pop off the dash to get to the thing?

Also, does anyone know where I can order the bulb? Any and all help is appreciated!

Sounds like a burnt out bulb, and you get to it through the dash. Just take the screws out of the dash around the gauges and the panel will pop off. The bulbs are usually 194, which can be bought almost anywhere.
