Gauge light
« on: January 01, 2011, 09:18:30 PM »
I have a light out in one of the gauges in the dash. The gauge itself functions properly. Anyone have a shortcut on how to get to it? Dash faceplate has screws in it (a lot) and there appears to be a panel on the top that might be removable but don't know. Can I replace just the bulb or do I need to do a whole new gauge? Thanks!

On ours the panel on top is removable. It is held in place by Velcro. Once the panel is removed you can get to the back of the instrument panel easily. I would think the bulbs would be replaceable, but I don't know for sure.

Ours is a 1995 and yes, the panel is velcroed in.  I have easy access and the bulbs are easy to change, just match replacement with number on old bulb.  Just in case you get the bright idea that I did to change them to red, don't waste your time, hard to read gauges and did not look as nice as I thought it would.  If number is illegible, my Spartan chassis manual had the OEM numbers in it.  NAPA or any bigger auto parts should have them and pick up a spare.

Thanks everyone for the responses. Sounds like I might get off easy for once . . .  :)
