Default Hi beam indicator in 2002 Touring Model

Hi, guys.
Can anyone tell me whether the blue hi beam indicator for a 2002 Touring model instrument cluster is a replaceable bulb like the others used for the gauge illumination? Or is it actually a small led-type indicator which is soldered into the circuit board for the gauge cluster?

I replaced all of my instrument cluster bulbs last summer and they're working great. I can't remember whether or not the hi-beam indicator was a replaceable or not. My hi and low beams work just fine. It's just that my hi-beam indicator occasionally won't illuminate.

Thanks for any and all replies!

OK, thanks very much. I couldn't remember and it's way to cold to be pulling the dash and cluster out in this kind of weather to find out. I wish I had a garage to work in, but I don't.

Inside the post that I link to below, is the link to the instructions I posted some time ago on how to replace your dash lamps, including the high beam. As I say in the post below, replace them with LED's, they are awesome!

Dash lamp replacement: went to LED

Yep,

That bulb is replaceable from the back of the cluster. In the photo below, it's the one right above the speedometer coil in the center of the board.

Thanks, guys! I appreciate your replies. I will get around to this once springtime gets here. It's too damned cold to be sitting outside in my driveway and digging into this. Boy, do I wish I had a garage to work in...lol.

it's advised not to put a brighter than stock bulb in that location, as it'll be overly bright and very annoying. when the brights are on, no light there is IMO a better option, which is what i did. i'd leave it burned out unless you have a problem with forgetting the brights are on.


not just me, FYI:
