Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
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.

In order to replace the dash lights you will have to remove the instrument custer. disconnect the battery first the remove the plastic piece around dash and unbolt instrument cluster, the bulbs are in back of the cluster they twist off, and twist on ,you can get new bulbs at the dealer or at a local parts store, the junk yard will also have bulbs
