2004 Tacoma instrument panel light bulb replacement?

Ok what is the secret? Do I need to rip out the whole dash to get to the right most light bulb that illuminates the gas gauge and and right side of the speedometer?

So, Mike, I'm a new member and can't find if you got an answer to your question. Do I have to take the whole dash apart to replace the light behind my gas gauge?

Thanks, I saw the two screws and took them out, but I stopped after taking them out because it looked like I then needed to take the panel light dimmer dial off and unscrew the ring that holds it before I could pull the bezel trim. I didn't want to get in too deep doing this because I can live without replacing the light, but didn't want to get stuff with a half dismantled dash. So, my choice is to keep going or forget the whole thing. Maybe its just not worth the trouble. Thanks anyway.

Question 2004 dash cluster light replacement

The links shown on this thread that shows how to remove/replace dashboard and everything else is out of date.
Does anyone have an active link which shows the process.

Also, love the blue superbright bulbs. Any down side to putting them in instead of the OEM lights?

Thanks...cool site...first visit/post.

LED

Do you remember what model number that was from superbrightleds.com?
They seem to have a lot of different options. I've got a bulb out on the right side of the panel by the fuel guage on an 04.
