Question about 2002 Ford Taurus
That is always an issue. The bulbs themselves will be fitted in a 1/4 turn socket. Your best bet is to lie on the floor and reach up into the dashboard and feel for the lamps. It is never easy to reach them.
Taking the dashboard out is usually more problematic but once you have done that, the bulbs are easy to reach.

Yes they can, if you know how to remove your instrument panel. I honestly can not help you with exact instructions but a Google search for "replace Instrument panel bulbs in 98 avalon" should help you find exact directions, if not you can buy a subscription for your exact model car at alldatadiy.com for 20.00 and it is well worth the cost if you maintain your own car and want to save lots of money! I use it daily! I hope I have helped you find a solution to your problem & MERRY CHRISTMAS

We have a similar problem with a loose bulb. We tap in the light external light fixture and the bulb re-lights and the idiot light goes off.

Actually it is pretty easy. Take the plastic off from around the base of the steering column...couple of screws. Take the plastic trim off from around the radio. Pop one edge off and then the rest you work off....it pops back in place. Next, tilt your steering wheel as far down as possible.
Remove the plastic around the the whole area in front of the dash...it really isn't much, just sounds like it. To do so, remove the fuse panel on the driver's side of the dash. Remove that screw there. That plastic "hood" that covers the gauges, trim piece, it pops right out also. Once that is removed, unscrew the instrument cluster....the screws on the WHITE tabs.
Carefully remove the instrument cluster and unplug the harness in the back....
Pretty much it!
You will laugh when you see how easy it really is once you start to put it back in. Very simple. If you have to do it again, you should be able to do it in like 10 minutes or less......and think of what the dealership would have charged you!!!!!!
