Here's good write-up I found to replace the instrument cluster lights, hope it helps!

1 - Unscrew the two screws at the top of the underside of the instrument panel trim cover using a screwdriver.

2 - Pull the instrument panel trim off of the cluster assembly.

3 - Unscrew the four screws from the instrument cluster that hold the cluster assembly in place.

4 - Slide the cluster assembly forward.

5 - Unplug the electrical connectors from the back of the instrument cluster.

6 - Turn the cluster assembly over and locate the bulbs that need replacing.

7 - Turn the instrument cluster light bulb counter-clockwise to unlock it from the back of the cluster assembly.

8 - Pull the bulb out of the back of the instrument cluster and insert a new bulb. Then, turn the bulb clockwise to lock it into the instrument cluster.

9 - Reassemble the dash by reconnecting the electrical connectors to the back of the cluster and securing the cluster and trim with the factory retaining screws.
