Question about 1992 Chevrolet S-10 Blazer
HI I have a 1992 Cherolet s 10 pickup that has several blown out light bulbs in the dash. How does one gain access the bulbs to replace it?
Below the steering column is an access panel, or a cover. It is held in place with four Philips screws. One in each corner. Remove it. (Keep track of those screws. They have a special washer made onto them!)
Now you can reach up under the dash more easily, and feel for the dashlight bulb holders. You have to lay on your right side on the floorboard, twist your upper body to the left, and stick your arm, and hand up in there. This will be so much fun, that you'll want to get a second job doing just this! (NOT!)
Since you've never done this before, (If I'm correct), I'll try to explain what you're feeling for.
To explain what a dashlight bulb holder looks like.
Looking at the bulb socket side, it is a round shaped piece of plastic about the size of a nickle.
There is a socket in the middle, and the miniature
lamp bulb pushes down in to install.
Looking at the backside, where your fingers will be touching, it looks like a knob on a gas stove. It has a protrustion in the middle, that is shaped in a rectangle.
The bulb end that inserts into the bulb socket, narrows down to a flat tip. Should be a 194. Looks like this,
The bulb holder has one crude thread on it. To remove it, you turn it one-quarter turn, then take it out. As you face the dash, turn it to the right.
Once you get one out in your hand, you'll see what I meant about the shape, why it was hard to describe, and how crude my explanation probably is.
REPLACE one bulb at a time!
Hope this helps you in some way.

The dash lights aren't too hard of a fix in all honesty. What I have trouble with is getting the lights on my trailer to work. I'm wondering if I should just go in to <a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.wholesaletrailersupplies.com/catalog/">wholesale trailer parts</a> store and ask them what to do or what.

Wow this is the hard way to do this!! All you have to do is remove the Speedometer there is a total of 8 screws to take out. Then the whole console comes out. At this point it is very easy to change the builds. While you have it out change all of the bulbs.
