To remove the dashboard (the part that covers the instrument) to change the instrument light bulbs.

1) On the left side of dashboard where the light dimmer and the left mirror controls are, there is a screw. You have to get on your knees and look up.

2) Remove the screw

3) There is a plastic cover over the heater control that snaps off. Use a screwdriver and snap the left side and then the right side fasteners.

4) After removing the cover from the heater control, you will see 2 screws, one to the left and one to the right (remember to look up). Remove these screws and now the dash is ready to come off.

5) Use a screwdriver to run against the edges. Start from the left and pop the fasteners.

6). On the left, unplug the wires attached to the mirror and dimmer control.

7) On the right unplug the wire for the heater control

8) Towards the center is another wire for the clock and a light bulb that lights up the ignition. Remove the wire from the clock and be careful with the wire for the ignition light because it has a tint bulb. I didn't see it and the bulb broke. Also remove the rubber cover over the ignition.

9) The dash is ready to come off with some twisting.

10) Unscrew the instrument panel and replace the blown bulbs with # 194 bulbs. There is a total of 4 ea. #194 bulbs (one on each side & 2 in the center). You can find them at Walmart

If two lights bulbs burned out inside the dashboard of a Toyota Sienna 2000 is it worth replacing them all since it is such a big task to remove dashboard and if so how many light bulbs are there?

Hi we've had several lights out for a while but the guy at the dealer said that they'd have to rip the whole dashboard out just to replace two little inexpensive l.e.d. lights and the labor would be VERY expensive. So, we suffer with the inconvenience until something else goes wrong and the dashboard HAS to come off. This may not help but I'm sure if you check the dealer they can give you an estimate of time/labor vs part cost. hd- 6/21/09- I changed my instrument bulbs on my 200 Sienna and it was easy.
