Steering wheel off. Screws in upper underside of cluster (2 Ithink). Wiggle cluster towards rear of vehicle and un plug wires - make notes if some single wires of where they go. Unclip and change globes. Reverse order of removal. Maybe disconnect neg ternimal of battery first - depends on you.

Havnt played with one of these for ages. Screws holding the unit(s) are top corners usually. Possible a bit of the dash skin is masking seeing the screw. Dont force the instrument cluster - the plastic will be brittle and may snap. Then it is super glue etc..
