replacing instrument cluster bulbs 98 zj

Has anyone removed the cluster on a 98 zj laredo 4.0l? The bulbs for the right side of the tach and left side of the speedo went dim all of the sudden. I was going to pull the cluster to replace the bulbs, any tips or tricks?

I've done it, my CEL was disabled by the previous owner, he removed the bulb. Hit the connector on the back of the entire cluster with some dielectric grease when you reinstall it, cheap insurance to make sure you don't have to do this repair ever again. Its so easy. I cleaned the whole thing while I had it out too.
