Instrument cluster light replacement

I have an 02 and i have seen pics of how the lights in the cluster are mounted in the back...has anyone tried to replace the lights without removing the cluster?? Just wondering if its possible to get to them by reaching under the dashboard and getting to them from there. Oh...and while i am on the subject is it a PITA to get the cluster out of the dashboard in case i have to do that??? Thanks

I am having trouble removing the guage trim, the left air vent is connect to the ductwork and is preventing me from removing it. Any advice?
