Start by removing the steering wheel. (19mm socket) next remove the steering column upper and lower covers by removing the four screws from the underside of the plastic cover. There are two small screws that you need to remove to pull out the black trim around your cluster using a stubby philips screwdriver. They are easier to see with a small flashlight, look up just above and back from the clear plastic cover over your instrument panel. One is about at 10 o'clock and the other at 2 o'clock. Just pull the dimmer switch cover straight back and remove the small nut so you can get the trim out. It just snaps in so be gentle. Once you have the trim out there are only a few screws holding the cluster in and there are two connectors attached to the back. Remove those and your'e home free. Let me know if that helps.

Check engine light bulb is blown how do I replace it

In order to answer your question, I went to "e-bay" and looked up instrument clusters for your vehicle.
As I suspected, the bulbs are "peanut" bulbs, and they press into a small plastic socket, that twists off and back on the rear of the instrument cluster panel.
I don't think you will be able to change that bulb without removing the whole instrument panel cluster from the dash.
I might be wrong.
Look up under the dashboard and see if the back of the cluster is easy for you to see and get your hand up to.
If so, good.
God bless your efforts.

How do I replace dash light bulbs on a 2007 Ford Escape?

What lights are not working ? The instrument cluster illumination is inoperative or all the lights ,radio , heater control head, all the switches that would be back lighted.
  • The climate control panel illumination is inoperative , The passenger door lock control switch illumination is inoperative. Could need new dimmer switch , new instrument cluster. When installing a new instrument cluster, it is necessary to upload the module configuration to the scan tool. Following installation of the new instrument cluster, download the module configuration from the scan tool into the new instrument cluster. Refer to Section 418-01 .

    How do you change dash lights

    Dash lights are replaced from the rear of the cluster or control thats out, take note that some of these newwer cars and trucks have clusters that the bulbs are part of the electronic curcuit boad and cant be replaced, the whole unit would need to be replaced, this is something you wont know until the cluster is removed, there are many lights behind the cluster, a trick i learned is to remove a bulb you untwist it and it pops out, then pull the bulb from the socket and install a new bulb into socket, then line up slots on socket push in and twist to lock, the trick is there are a lot of bulbs so remove the bulb and then shine a liight throuh the hole and look at the front of the cluster to see if its a night light or a symbol to see if its the correct light. hope this helps, good luck.

    Change dash bulb 2001 tausus

    There are 4 screws on the trim around your instrument cluster trim remove those and the entire cluster of gauges comes out enough to reach around and unhook the wiring harnesses from the back then you can remove the entire cluster. Autozone carries a 10 pack of 3.78 watt bulbs for around $3 best to just replace them all if 1 burned out that means its about time the others will be burning out soon to. I replaced a few of mine that burned out and didn't think to replace them all and sure enough about a month later 2 more burned out. Had to take the whole thing out and do it again this time I replaced all the original bulbs. At autozone the part number for the 10 pack is 194-box or if you are just changing 1 or 2 I think the twin pack part number is 194-l

    Trying to replce dash lights on speedomoter on a

    Hi there,

    Well you can please follow the below steps -
    1. Remove the two screws on the underside of the dash cowl.
    2. Pull off the trim bezel that surrounds the gauge cluster and dash assembly by pulling it forward with your hands.
    3. Remove the four screws that hold the gauge cluster in place.
    4. Slide the gauge cluster forward, and remove the electrical plugs from the back of the cluster.
    5. Replace the bulbs that are blown. Turn each bulb counterclockwise to unlock it from the dash cluster assembly, then pull the bulb straight out of the housing. Insert the new bulb, align the tabs on the bulb with the notches in the back of the cluster and turn it clockwise to lock it into the housing.
    6. Reassemble the dash. Assembly is the reverse of disassembly. Post comments for more help or information........

    Good Luck!!

    BMW L7 Dashboard And Air Doors

    The dash will have to come out for the A/C prob to check the stepper motors and wiring. There are about 6 motors back controling different flaps to control direction of airflow. Once you get the dash out, turn on the car and start working the climate control to see what motors and flap are doing what. Once you see what's happening or not happening, you will know what to do then. about 4 to 5 hrs to take out dash fix prob reinstall dash.
    The dash does not have to come for bulbs. For the cluster, you may have to drop the wheel if it does not adjust down far enough to remove the cluster. Drop the lower dash under the wheel, one of the bolts is left hand thread to hold the wheel up, two wery small screw hold the cluster, it slides out. One hour at most; two if no experience doing it.
