1997 F250 Instrument gauge bulb replacement

I have removed the hex nuts but the trim panel won't come out. It seems one side is still connected but I can't find where. I don't want to pull on it and crack the trim.

There are two screws under the trim pieces left and right side. after that, its all spring clips. to get the panel completely off, you will need to pull off the headlight knob, disconnect the fuel tank switch once its partially pulled off, and putting the tilt wheel down and putting the shifter in 1 (if its an automatic) will help. if its a diesel, there's also a connection to the warning panel on the right that has to come off. after you do it once, it will be easy as pie. if anything, you may break one or two clip mountings, just JB Weld them back into place.

Hi, it's possible the bulb is burned out or not making good contact with the circuit board. It should come on during the bulb check when you first turn the key on. Pull out the cluster and check the bulb. If it's good, see if you can clean the contact surfaces to get it working again. Or, move to another state where they don't worry about stupid things like a light bulb.

Replacing a gauge light 1984 chevy c10


The instrument cluster trim panel will have to come off first of all by removing the screws witch are all phillips heads screws. You will see a small trim panel wrapped below the steering coluum. That will needs to come off first. Pull the radio knobs off next and remove the nuts on the radio shafts. You will need to remove all screws surrounding the sides and the top areas next. If you have tilt wheel lower the tilt down as far as it goes. Gently remove the panel. Next the gauges will show two screws holding each one one. I would replace all bulbs since one goes out more will later very soon. Reverse this proceedure to re-install
