Burnt out bulb in instrument cluster

I have a burnt out bulb on the right hand side of the speedometer in my 2002 Pontiac Bonneville. The local dealer tells me that I have to have the complete panel removed and sent away for repair. This is projected to cost $360+ and I'm just wondering if there is a way around this?

I can't find the steps for it but I guarantee you all you would have to do is pull the cluster an replace the bad is NOT that hard. Take a lot of pics if you have digital camera and you can do this. It really is not that hard....

One screw at a time and the whole assembly pops right out....very simple.

Am I missing something or is everyone answering the wrong question?
If I am reading this right you are having problems in your instrument cluster in your dash not being lit up on one side, correct?
If so it is most likely a burnt out bulb or two.

Odometer not lighting up

lights behind the instrument cluster may be burnt out, you have to pull the dash assembly apart and pull the cluster out to get behind it and check the little bulbs that are in the back of the cluster panel

Light on the left of dashboard where heat gauge is, is burnt out.

You can replace the bulbs but if you have never replaced one it might be more than you want to deal with. You have to remove the beauty ring from dash assembly then remove dash, be careful when you unplug the wires from the back of the Speedo assembly notice which direction it comes out. You can maneuver it out of it's hole and pull it out and on the back side of the cluster you will see miniature bulbs that can be replaced unscrew counter clock wise then lift bulbs out, for a do it yourselfer it's a 3 hour job to get everything back right and If you don't screw up the plastic circuit board on the back and you don't bend the tangs on the connectors.
