Dash lights going out

The lights behind my speedometer on my 06 are goin out. Are there a bunch of different single bulbs to change or is it like a whole unit to change out? And how hard is it to get to them? Thanks

There is a few 1/4 twist style bulbs, I hope thats all you need. mines not the case. the dash should just pop off start above your radio and just work toward your steering wheel. All the wires will unplug fairly easy. just take your time and undo them all then you need a small 8 mm i think may be smaller and start on your gage cluster just a few screws and two our three plugs and youll have it out. Its really not hard just a little agravating at times. But you should have it out and back in within an hour at the tops.

I don't think I have ever seen anything other than burned out bulbs.
