Step 1. Remove the two screws at the top of the outer panel that holds it in place. Step 2. Snap out the panel. Step 3. Remove the two screws that hold the cluster in place. The screws are located at both edges. Step 4. Carefully remove the cluster. Be careful not to damage the wire harness located at the back of the cluster. There should be about 3 or 4 bulbs in sockets that "lock" into place at the back of the cluster. Step 5. Remove the bulbs sockets by turning them counter-clockwise and removing them. Step 6. Remove the bulbs from the sockets. Take the bulbs to your auto store and get matching bulbs. Toyota also sells them for about $3.00 for a pack of 2. Reverse the above to replace. Good luck.

Heres how you replace the instrument lights on the Estima . 1 st remove the surround for the heater controls in the middle of the dash board, this can be done by carefully lifting it off with a screw driver, as the surround is held in place by 4 clips. 2nd open both front doors, were the dash board meets the front door pillars prize the edge of the dash off , as with the heater surround it is held in with clips , pull off the front of the dash board, once you have removed the dash board you now have the instrument panel exposed. The insrument panal is held in with 4 screws undo these and the panal will fall forward, there is plenty of cable on the back of the instrument panal so it can be pulled right out and this will expose the instrument bulbs on the back. Good luck.

How do you replace the digital odometer light bulb on a 2000 Saturn SL2?

You will need to remove the instrument cluster board. To do that, remove the trim piece around the instrument cluster, then carefully pull the instrument cluster out of the dashboard. Note that the instrument cluster plugs in to a socket in the dashboard, so be careful as you remove the circuit board so that you do not damage the plug. Once the instrument cluster is out, replace all bulbs. They twist to remove, and if the odometer bulb has failed, the others are getting old too. It might be best to replace them all to avoid future problems.

1999 Chrysler 300M instrument cluster lights do not always come on?

I had the same issue. In the instrument cluster there are 3 boards. The smallest board with the odometer and transmission status displays also has the 4 lights for the back lighting. This board is plugged into the main board and can easily be changed. Theses lights short out and cannot be changed out individually, the only thing you can do is replace this board.
