    Mine literally just went off this morning on the way to work. The right portion of the cluster still works but the left side is dim. I don;t have a write up but if you pull the cluster then take it apart from the back it is pretty easy to find the bulb. Good luck

    Does the cluster just pop out or do you have to remove some screws?

    Now when you say, "it just pops out" where do I pop it out? Mine went out and even though it's on warranty, there is no way I'm going to leave my truck at the dealer for an entire day. Thanks for your help!

    that post has nothing to do with the problem. its not rocket science take the bulb out as i said and get a new one. theres nothing more to read into it. I just took the pic from my 11 and it is the same as my 06 they havent changed
