Need help changing dash guage bulb

So i have a bulb in my speedometer between the 30mph and 60 mph out. Does anyone have a walk through on how to replace it and where to get the bulb?
Thanks.

Re: Need help changing dash guage bulb

pull the trim pieces off to get to the two screws that hold the bigger piece of trim on, unhook the switch for the tanks, unhook the wires going to the wait to start and water in fuel lights. then remove the 4 screws that hold that hold the gauge cluster, unhook the wire harness that hooks into the back of the cluster. on the back you will see all the bulbs. that are just a twist lock.

Not too hard to do, just be careful not to lose the little clips that hold the horizontal trim pieces on that you must remove in order to get tothe screws that hold the bezel in place.

Re: Need help changing dash guage bulb

For all of the work to get to the dash bulbs, you should just replace all of them.
