How to Change Dash Lightbulb

The dash light bulb has burned out (I think) in my car and I can not seem to find out how to change it in my owners manual. Can you tell me how to get to the dash light bulbs or show me a picture of them?

Hey Lewis

Depending on what kind of vehicle you have, the instrument cluster will probably unscrew from the dash and then you can pull the whole thing out of the vehicle. Turn the cluster over, and see if you can locate where the bulb would go.

The row of black knobs at the bottom of the second picture are the bulbs, just unscrew the knob to get to the bulb. Some cars take standard 194 miniature bulbs where others require special bulbs available at the dealership.
