should be fairly easy, remove the screws holding the shroud/cover,
gently (definately dont yank) pull the covertill the tabs let go. The
four to six main mounting bolts/screws should be visible, remove
these. its pretty much cake from there. pull out the cluster, again
not too hard(because of the wiring harness/speedo cable if equiped!)
and look for black nobs these are the bulbs, just aim for the ones
that are dead, turn and replace as needed. then simply reverse the
process. hope this helps.

How much room is there to get your hand behind there? My '98 Sable had a
bulb go out behind the gas gauge. I asked the dealer to call and tell me
how much they'd charge me to replace it while the dash was being pulled for
a heater core replacement. They never called. They just did the work.
The price was 27 cents for the bulb, $55 for labor. Needless to say, I was
somewhat irked. When I got it back, the flasher bulb for the left turn
signal indicator was out. I took it back to them, figuring they must have
knocked a wire loose or something. They said that bulb had gone out. I
was irked again, but I told them not to fix it. I had it in for a
tensioner pulley replacement. The old one was freezing up on me and
causing the belt to flop around excessively.
