This is fairly simple but is in a tight spot. You need to take the panel that has the rear defrost and truck button on it. Then you need to get an 8 mm and take out the casing that surrounds the insturment cluster (usually it is black), I believe you need to put the gear shift to the lowest gear to get enough room to pull the casing out. Then get a star tool to unscrew the cluster and pull it out toward you and then remove then remove the harnesses that plug into the back, be careful not to break the cable that is connected to the back of the cluster. Once all is complete on the back of the cluster there are black clips that have a socket on the inside which holds the bulbs. To pull these out you need twist these then they will release. At this point you can swap the bulbs with another bulb that you really dont need like the seatbelt light or just do the best thing and replace the bulb. Its been a while since I changed a bulb, so if I missed anything post it to inform others that may read.

1992 crown victoria speedometer works odometer does not work .

This is an internal issue and the speedometer must be removed and repaired. There are people who still do this and can rebuild your old unit. Look in your area or there may be places to ship it to. Local salavage yards may have it if down time is an issue. Be sure to save the receipt in the car so that actuall mileage can be verified.

Speedometer runs but odometer dont; on 1993 Crown Victoria

Sounds like the speedometer head itself has failed or is in the process of doing so. While it may be possible to obtain just a speedometer head it would be far easier and probably cheaper to go down to the local salvage yard and get yourself a whole new instrument cluster. Many times they will come with instructions for resetting the mileage to match your car, if it doesn't, just attach a drill to the connection point for the speedometer cable and run the drill until it has the right mileage.

Either the speed sensor,or the dash cluster is of fault. Have Auto Zone test the speed sensor,if ok ,,, I would replace the cluster ( buy used ) much cheaper.
