Because this job can be complicated for the inexperienced, I recommend investing in a Haynes Repair Manual. The one that covers this vehicle is #36059 and covers Ford Pick-ups and Expeditions from 1997 thru 2002. I recently replaced the bulbs in my instrument cluster, so I can attest that it is a pain to do this job. It is not very hard, but it takes some time. The bulbs are cheap, so I bought a box of ten and replaced them all, because as you know, if I just replaced the two that were bad, I'd be going back very soon to do the rest. The Haynes manual is very good. You have to remove the headlight switch first, and there is a trick to that. The illustrations are great to find the screws that hold things together. I followed the book step by step and found the help to be excellent. Good luck.

You might want to check or replace your dash dimmer light switch. I found this to cause either no dash lights or intermittent lights. Check the fuse box under the hood. The fuse you need is under the hood.

You have to take off the entire dash, which simply consists of a few screws. It's a pain for one tiny lightbulb. :)
