Default Instrument Cluster

94 Ranger 2.3L 4 cyl. 5spd. I have several lights out on instrument panel making it difficult to drive at night. How difficult is it to replace bulbs, and does anybody have any tips ?

I have a 2007 Ranger XL and the dash does not illuminate with the headlights off. Is this the way it is or am I missing something. Thanks, Soapy
