remove 07 cluster

my blub went out on my cluster. Would anybody be able to help me on removing it? I tried by removing the two screws on top, but the darn thing will not move. Is there anything else holding it in place? I know it is still under warranty, but i just dont have time during the week to take it in.

thanks.

Most likely it isn't a bulb - it may be a larger issue. The 2nd Generation Tacomas have LEDs instead of bulbs on the instrument cluster. The life span of these is much longer than a standard bulb. They are also MUCH harder to replace as they are soldered on to a circuit board behind the face of the cluster.

My advice - call the dealership and have them come pick it up, and give you a loaner car. This is not something that you want to tackle on your own. Besides, if it is under warranty they will pay for it, but if you screw it up you will pay for it.

Let us know how it goes.
