    I've got a couple bulbs out behind the AC controls and behind my tach.

    Anyone know what the replacement bulbs are?

    Would like to have bulbs in hand before I tear the dash apart.

    It takes a little over an hour to change them if you know what you are doing...

    The hardest part is getting the speedo cable hooked back up to the cluster. 2wd without a tach are the worst because its in the center. I actually unscrew one of the uprights that holds the cluster in place on the right side which allows you to put your arm back there and plug it in. Switched the phillips screws on the upright to socket head for ease of removal

    Agreed. I figured out how to wedge my hand back in there and guide the speedo cable on with my fingertips. I always end up with abrasions on my wrist though. Looking forward to that again this week...replacement gauge overlays came in. I hate messing with the gauge needles.

    But I digress. ~10 minutes to get the cluster out now that I've done it a few times. ~15 to get it all back together - that stupid air vent ducting fights me every time.
