How do you get into the "hump" above the instrument cluster to simply change the Check Engine Light bulb.
Will it be necessary to remove the entire instrument cluster and board to get to hidden screws or does the "hump" simply pry off. I don't want to break any clips by forcing anything. Thanks in advance for any help.:biggrin:

I got impatient so I took a small pry bar and a piece of cardboard to protect the dash, lifted gently and the clips popped out easily. I replaced the bulbs with replacements I had ordered from "Light Spectrum Enterprises" that I found on the web. Very reasonable replacement price. Thanks again.
Now to figure out what's causing my check engine light. :thumb:
