If you have the shifter on the column...I can't help you. I your shifter is on the floor (center console), then you take something to pry up on the gray plate that covers a large portion of that console where the P, R N D D 2 and 1 are. Slide this plate up and look for the bulb under there.

1.) Turn Key in ignition just enough to turn the radio on but NOT start the car. 2.) Put your foot on the brake and put your car in Neutral (this will make moving the plate easier). 3.) Open Ashtray and take it out. 4.) While gently holding bottom of the gray plate that covers the gear shift and indicators, use a small thin flat head screw driver to pry up the edges. Gently move the cover to the side. Be careful and work your way around the edges and you will have it up in minutes. 5.) Using a Philips screw driver, carefully remove the 3 gold screws that secure the shift plate. I strongly suggest using a magnetized screwdriver so that you don't lose any screws to the depths below the console. 6.) Carefully pull the gear shift assembly a little out of the console. 7.) On the left side you will see a couple small wires on a black node coming out from the area right next to the gear indicator icons. Turn that small black bulb case counter-clockwise and pull out. 8.) Remove bulb and replace :) I was actually able to recycle the green silicone like cover that goes over the bulb. Overall 10 mins and $2.80 later, like new :)
