Go to the dealer or shop online for a set of dashhooks or instrument cluster hooks. There should be two elongated holes on either side of the instrument cluster(on the black trim). You will insert the hooks, turn approx 90 degrees and pull the cluster out. Unplug the cluster from the back(don't worry, if you have the steering wheel all the way down and out from the dash, it will clear it). Then flip the cluster and take out the corresponding bulb(use some needle nose pliers). They just twist loose and yes you will have to go back to the dealer to get them.

Dash light on a 1999 Ford Ranger


You have to remove the instrument cluster in order to replace the bulbs. This will include removing the knee panel under the steering wheel, the black trim piece in front of the instrument cluster, and possibly the trim and vents surrounding the radio, depending where the screws are located.

Some of the bulb holders may have notched the foil contacts on the board and the bulbs won't light after they are replaced. If that happens, you'll need to bend the tabs on the bulb holder slightly and use your finger nail to flatten out the dent in the foil.

It's not a quick fix, so you may want a dealer to service it. I suggest replacing your bulbs with LED's for longer life.

High beam indicator light out. How do I remove guage cluster?


The small plastic trim just pops off,behind them are 4-5 maybe even 6 small screws. i have a 95 F-150 as well and just changed all 17 bulbs that make up your instrument cluster. You can get the bulbs from Ford(cheap). I would recomend doing this when it is warmer outside or indoors where it is warm so you don't break any plastic parts. As well, I recomend you change all the bulbs while you have your dash apart. The manual said I would need to disconect the wiring harness but I was able to contort myself enough to do the deed with the dash laying on its side partly removed. Only took about an hr or so to complete.

PS: if you remove the plastic shroud around the stering column it will give you a bit more room to work.

How to change lighbulbs behind the panel board of 1998 Toyota Corolla?


Using a short phillips screwdriver, remove the 3 screws that holds the fascia over the plastic inst panel lens. Pull this fascia towards you, and remove it from the dash. With the fascia out of the way, you will see 4 screws holding the instrument cluster to the instrument panel. Remove the 4 screws. Pull the instrument pod towards you, and, working behind the pod, disengage all of the wire connectors behind the pod. When all of the wire connectors are removed, take the pod from the dash, and look at the back side; the bulbs are accessible there. The bulbs are not special; hope this helps, and THANK YOU for choosing FixYA!
