Default Dash Light Bulb

Have at least one speedo light bulb out, maybe two. I have not yet tried to get the cluster loose to see, but has anyone pulled the cluster, and how hard is it to do?

Not hard to do, just takes a little time. While you are at it, I'd recommend replacing all of them while you have everything apart. Will prevent (hopefully) having to take the dash apart a second time later. I think there are 6 or 7 bulbs total. Dealer can look it up for you.

I just finished replacing mine. It is not very hard (I had to do mine twice cause I had installed a bad bulb - only took me 50 min. the last time). There are 6 bulbs (I have a 2002 Limited) which are instrument bulbs #74. You do have to remove a lot of covers to get the instrument cluster out. I bought a Haynes Auto Repair book on the Cruiser, and it details all the steps, in a roundabout way. If you want, email me and I will give you the details on how to do it, what not to do and some of the tricks I learned doing it twice. I will attach a couple of pictures that show what the car looks like as you get it torn down. I looks much harder than it really is, so don't get worried about doing it. Also DON"T forget to test all the lamps when you put the instrument cluster back in INCLUDING the highbeam indicator - see my other posts about this. (obviously I forgot to check the highbeam lamp, thus I did it twice) Oh also, don't leave the instrument cluster upside down for over 1/2 hour after you have removed it from the car.
