Question about 2002 Honda Civic

RE: Dashboard light out on the right side, at the fuel gauge

Hi there,

As the subject line says, my 2002 Honda Civic's dashboard is working properly, with all lights on when the car is started. One section, however, remains dark, or unlit. This is the fuel gauge that sits on the right side of the dashboard. I'm guessing it's a bulb that's burnt out, as opposed to a fuse because it's that specific location (fuel gauge) that is only unlit. Would someone be able to tell me how I might go about replacing the bulb (or fuse, if it's a fuse problem)? Any insights is appreciated!

Remove the trim around the cluster which there is two screws the trim maybe a little hard to come loose what i do pull down in the center at the top to break the seal then pull out there is approx. 4 screws that hold the cluster in yow can buy the bulbs separate just make sure you have the vin to give them at the dealer and tell them what part of the cluster is out may have to take a bulb in to show them they could possibly match it up some of those bulbs are interchangeable
