96 ford ranger dash light replacement

I just got this ranger from my brother and went to go get it inspected. They told me the check engine light was either burnt out or it got pulled somewhere down the road. I bought new bulbs but now I have no real idea on how to replace it. Would really appreciate it if someone gave me clear directions on how to take apart the dash to replace the bulbs. A diagram would be really helpful if you could.

Pull your radio bezel. Pull the "kick" panel....that panel thats under the steering wheel. Pull the plastic bezel that holds your headlamp switch and that goes around your gauges. Then pull the 4 screws that holds your gauge cluster. Pull off the 3 electric connectors behind the cluster. Then take out the cluster, and replace bulbs, and re install.

Thats a quick write up.
