Remove dash overlay by popping off the trim pieces you will see a bolt on each side, remove headlight knob, when you pull it out be carefull to remove the fuel switch the tabs can be brittle and break, and disconnect the wts harness

The gauge cluster is held in by a couple screws I believe 4 or 6, and their are 3 harnesses that plug in the back as well (again they are brittle) the black turn knobs hold the light bulbs in just a 1/4 turn to a 1/2 turn they come rite out, I believe the bulb size is type 194, good luck

You need a tiny flathead screwdriver, or a dental pick. There is a metal tab you need to lift up on the inside of knob itself. Twist knob until you see a gap in the knob. Insert tool of choice in there and gently pry up the tab while pulling on knob. Be advised you need to turn lights on to find the gap I speak of, so don't forget to turn lights off when you get knob off.

What a pain in the balls. Replaced all 16 bulbs right wrong or indifferent. Not playing that game again.
