Light Out In Dash.. How To Take Apart To Get To The Bulb?

Tonight i turned my headlights on and obvisouly my dash lit up. I noticed that the coolant temp sensor light when it lit was really dim. The bulb was still working jsut not that bright.

I had a feeling that while driving that it would be bright again and sure enough it lit back up like normal. I think part of the filament is dead or is dying.

Anyways I know that it is gonna happen again, does anyone have a write up on how to remove the bezel surronding the dash? Do I need to take out the gauge cluster to get to the light bulbs? And what size are those bulbs?

Yup there's a thread about changing the dash lights to LEDs, but it should have everything in there that you need. Give me a sec and I'll find it for you..
