I'm not sure if the pre 05 clusters are the same but I just took out the 4 bolts that hold the cluster then rotated it up. All the bulbs are in 1/4 turn sockets. Pop them out and swap bulbs. Really simple.

Yes, the 03-04 ones can be done the same way.

Well I don't know about 05-07 clusters, but in the 03-04 ones the bulbs are white, the green color comes through the cluster itsself...
I know that's no real help

green is the color of the gauge cluster itself. If you want to change the color you have to change the face plate of it you can find them all over the net. Or I guess if you put a different color bulb it would have to mix with the green so you could go about it that way too i guess
