It comes off from the front. Open the front passenger side door and remove the fuse panel access door on the right hand side of the dash. There`s 1 screw to remove frome the dash cover and then pull the cover off. It`s easiest to work the top out and then lift up and out. Then there are 4 screws that hold the instrument cluster in place, remove them and pull it out andf you`ll have access to the bulbs.

Once you do it you`ll find you can pull the ****** out in 5 or 10 minutes.

How to take out instrument cluster in 2000 buick century odometer lights out


The instrument cluster in the 2000 Buick Century features an analog odometer that is back-lit, making it possible to see during night driving. Over time this light has a tendency to burn out, which can make for unsafe night driving as the driver will not be able to see all of the information usually at his disposal while driving. Replacing this light takes some time and requires you to be careful when disconnecting the wiring harnesses.

  1. Pry off the fuse box over on the passenger side and then remove the screw inside with a screwdriver.
  2. 2 Unscrew the screw on the far right side of the dash panel and then remove the panel.
  3. 3 Remove the two screws underneath the temperature controls and then pry off the plastic trimming.
  4. 4 Unscrew the one screw on the dash panel underneath the steering wheel.
  5. 5 Disconnect the wiring harness from behind the interior panel and then pry off this entire panel.
  6. 6 Unscrew the four screws around the instrument panel.
  7. 7 Pull out the instrument panel and disconnect the wiring harness on the back of it.
  8. 8 Twist the back of the bulb counterclockwise and then pull it out.

Odometer light out on a 01 buick century


I had this same problem and I removed the long plastic dash piece that goes from door to door (after removing other pieces which hold that one in place) and then tilt the steering wheel to the lowest position. turn the key and put the car in gear 1 then shut the car off -this enables you to remove the instrument cluster, which is held in by 4 screws. Unclip the back of the instrument cluster and remove the circuit board. On the board to the right of the speedometer are 4 resistors which look like tiny black cylinders -these need to be replaced (if they haven't already fallen off the circuit board). I was missing two and I just touched the other two with my finger and they fell off. I soldered onto the board 150 ohm, 1/8 watt resistors ($1.99 for a packof 5 at Radio Shack). This entire process took me about 30 minutes. I put everything back together in the reverse order I took it apart and my instrument cluster, odometer and gear-shift indicator works fine.

Instrument cluster removal 2001 buick century


You have to remove the dash but it is VERY simple to do.

Remove the fuseblock cover on the end of the dash on the passenger's side.
Once removed, remove the screw holding on the end of the dash.
Now, next to the glove box, to the right, remove the one screw on the bottom. Then remove this panel by pulling it out (it will now be held on by two clips at the top.)
Now, looking at the temperature control cover, remove the two screws from the bottom of this. Pull it off. It also is held on by two clips.
Now, below the steering wheel, remove the one screw from this panel (on the right). On the left there is a "plug" holding it in place, Pop out this plug. I think there are a couple of clips now holding this on at the top.
Now that you have all of that pulled out, pop the dash out. At worse, it is held in with clips.
Now that you have this out, there are four screws holding in the instrument panel. Take out these four screws. You will find one electrical cable connected to the cluster. Pop that off of the cluster and you now have the entire instrument cluster in your hands.

I've had to take mine out to figure out why my gear indicator/odomiter would not illuminate (Buick told me it was a light). I can see where this encased LED has a short (black mark). It is soldered onto the board. Looks like I have to purchase a repaired board.

I hope this helps.

My dashboard has no lights


Are all the lights in the dash out? if not, it is the bulb, the bad news is you have to remove the instrument cluster to replace the bulbs, there is no access from the rear that allows you to get your hand in there.

Instrument Cluster


No. 2001 to 2003 are interchangeable. I am currently looking to replace mine on a 2002 and have consistently been told those years are the same. These babys are pricey, perhaps you can trade your 2004 for one that will work.
