Have you removed the steering wheel cowling ? if not do this as may be another couple of screws there, if you have you have to gently wiggle it as far forward as you can so you can get your fingers behind it and release the speedo cable as it is usually this that is holding back these older car dash's

The cluster is the gauges, the speedometer, tachometer , and the warning l;ights. It all is removed as a single package, why it's called a cluster.

Just remove the 4 screws and then slowly pull the cluster out and reach behind and disconnect the plugs on the back of the unit and then remove the cluster. The bulbs can be removed by turning them and pulling out.

How to replace corolla dashboard lights


Difficult to explain step by step. You need yo remove the instrument cluster. If youre technically minded its not very hard, start by loosening the Phillip"s head screws that is visible on the panel directly under the instrument cluster, give it a try!

The temperature slider is stuck in the hot position. How do I get the control unit out of the dash


remove outer panel, usually two screws above and snap clips below. When it's out of the way, the gauge cluster should be easily removed by then- usually two screws on either side, just check for other screws to make sure. You will need to pull out the wiring sockets behind the gauge cluster (this could be a tight reach). Once it has been freed, you can remove the transparent cover. Hope this helps.

Replacment of a dash light. Toyota Corolla 1998


There is a plastic garnish surrounding the instrument cluster held in by 2 philips head screws. remove the screws and gently pry the garnish from top first then sides then it should pull out.

Then remove the 3 screws holding the cluster in place (2 bottom 1 top). Once that is done gently flip the cluster bottom up and pull out some to expose the wiring harness. Remove the 3 connectors from the back and then the cluster will pull out.

There are 3 bulbs that control the overall lighting of the cluster. They are spaced about every third across the rear of the cluster. They are the larger Green knobs. Remove the 3 large green knobs and replace the bulbs with the appropriate size. You can call your local parts store to find out the size.

Its a 5 minute job and does not require the entire removal of the dash board.

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!
