Default Need instrument panel help

I'm having two issues with my instrument panel that I will be needing to fix at some point. However, I am needing guidance as to the scope of the work. My Ranger is an '03 3.0L engine, Edge package.

On the right-hand side of the instrument cluster, the light is apparently burnt out - while the rest of the instrument panel has its normal "glow" to it, the right-hand side of the speedometer, as well as the battery gauge & oil pressure gauge are dark. I need to know how to access the light bulb in order to change it, and what sort of bulb I will need.

The second issue is probably not related, but I can't help but wonder. Occasionally, the right-turn signal light will "stick," causing a buzzing sound and the turn signal arrow to stay on. As its only occasionally, I have not been able to make this happen while sitting in the driveway to know if this is affecting the actual turn signal, but since its all the same circuit I can only assume it does. The left turn signal has never done this. Any ideas as to what the issue here is, and how to fix it?

Thanks in advance!

-Eric

Just FYI, this has been submitted into the how-to section, here is the "official" guide & discussion thread for that guide: http://www.fordrangerforum.com/how-s...placement.html

My ranger does the same thing. If the steering wheel is turned slightly to the left I cannot engange my left blinker.

I am also having a problem, I am new here, my rangers instrument cluster is half dead. Oil preassur, battery indicator, and speedometer works, but Gas, temp, and odometer does not work. fuses are all fine. with an obd2 tester i can see the temp reading. i have tried replacing the whole cluster for a u pullit yard and still the same problem. would this be a pcm issue. help as i have no way of telling how much gas is in my truck
