Yeah... thats what I do...my lights go out every now and then and I find that a little bump on the dash will turn them on again.

Re: cluster removal (gquigmf)

to take it off it's actually quite simple. The replacement bulbs will run you about a buck a piece at the dealer, give or take.
take off the screws in that picture, and pull the surround out. there are only 2 bolts holding it on. then the cluster has 2 screws, take those out too. then flip it forward, and unplug the 2 sets of wires going into the back. it's hinged at the bottom, so lift it and pull. the burnt out lights are on the top, you can see 2 parallel wires with the lights screwed on, you'll see what i mean.
then replace, reverse process, guage lights. yay

Why do I get the feeling that a couple of people haven't read this thread all the way...
