you don't say what year your Golf is but most are just a simple case of removing the front facia , usually held in with a couple of screws,on later golfs you have to remove the stereo. Unscrew the speedo dials and reach around and unclip the power blocks and speedo cable this lets you tilt the unit forward and unclip the bulbs. new bulbs can be bought at a auto store and replaced easily. the longest part is removing the facia

For lights behind the speedometer/tach warning light area, you have to take the screws out of the panel and then guide it out enough that you can twist it sideways and pull out the burned out bulbs. Replace with bulbs #194 and I would use the Long Life version of the bulbs.

If you only need bulbs then your solution is easy, however if the needles themselves no longer illuminate, then there is no bulb to replace since the needles are the bulbs. Your local Lexus dealer will be happy to assist you in this matter, there is one catch...they will only sell you the entire instrument panel. The last quote I got was around $300.00.

What could cause the speedometer and tachometer to fail on an 1984 Fiero SE and how would you fix it?

I'm not sure about the speedometer, but if the tach is not working a good bet would be the tach filter. With age, a wire often breaks off on these. Look in one of the service manuals to find location. The speedometer may have a similar sensor, but I'm not certain. Thanks! I will check out the book ASAP. Appreciate your answering.
