Remove 2 screws above the black trim bezel surrounding the Instrument cluster.

Insert a hard plastic or nylon prying tool into the crevice surrounding the trim and gently pry evenly all around the bezel until it pops off, or use a hook tool to grasp and pull the black bezel off.

Now you will have to remove 4 screws that hold the instrument cluster in place. Gently pull cluster forward and tilt down to expose electrical connectors. Carefully remove connectors by pushing in on the release tab and pulling up on the wires, this will remove the connector, repeat this procedure for the remaining connectors. Lower the steering column and gently remove the instrument cluster. You will notice little lamp holders at the backside of the cluster, genly grasp the holder(s), turn and pull up using a plier. Make a note where each lamp was removed. Purchase replacement part at your favorite Mazda dealer. Now just put everything back together and reinstall the instrument cluster.
