Default How to replace dash lights (very detailed)

Hey guys,

So I just made this video which should be very helpful to many of us! Replacing the dash lights is not that bad of a job and it is just a little time consuming with all of the screws.

Let me know what you think!

Excellent video, Chris! Perfect amount of detail. Thank you.

I'll be doing this soon, cuz one of my instrument cluster lights is flakey.
Plus, somehow, I have some 3" long pine needles trapped inside my clear plastic bezel, and now I know how to extract them. :-)
