Instrument panel lights 97 F350

I have a blown bulb behind my fuel gauge and can't figure out how to get to it to change it. The Hayes manual states there are 3 screws on the top that must be removed but mine don't have them. I don't want to damage or remove anything I don't have to. Any ideas?

It is a pretty easy job. It's been a while since I have done it but as best I recall:

Remove the rectangular trim pieces with the curved ends with a screw driver or trim tool. They will pop off, from there you can remove the screws that hold on the molded black dash piece, remove it. This will give you access to the bulbs that are "hidden" that light up the different parts of your instrument cluster.

There might be a step or two missing but this should get you on your way. Just take your time.

Aaaahhhh, those two rectulanger pieces is what was throwing me. I couldn't figure out where the other screws were. It's changed now! Thanks for the help!

BTW, I love that picture of the jet. That's classic.

Glad it worked out for ya Richard. As for the picture someone emailed it to me last year about this time, it makes me chuckle every time I look at it. Poor Santa
