Question about 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier
I just replaced the bulb in mine, it's a real PITA. You have to take off the top dash pad, remove the instrument cluster, completely disassemble it (and I mean completely: right down to the circuit board, including removing the gauge needles). The bulb is also soldered directly to the circuit board, so you have to remove it and re-solder a replacement. In the end I don't think it's worth it: the Cavalier gauges are very fragile and since I re-assembled everything, the speedometer doesn't work any more (the motors that drive the needles seem to be very delicate), so I'm out to get a new instrument cluster. IHMO it's a very poor design by GM: if they're going to use incandescent bulbs that burn out, they should have made them more easily replacable.
