One of the instrument cluster lights burned out on my 2000 Taurus, it's the one right behind 60 MPH on the speedometer.

How do I go about replacing this light bulb? Where can I buy a replacement? Or would it just be better to take it to the stealership?

Thanks.

Instrument Cluster Removal.
Remove coverplate under steering wheel. Two screws on bottom. Snaps on top, pull out panel. Remove headlight switch. Use small screwdriver and cover tip with tape. Pops out from bottom. Unplug. Remove radio cluster - use U shape tool (two) purchased at any auto parts store. These tools compress side spring/clamps and radio cluster comes right out. Unplug all connectors. Usually a push in release. Remove molding that surrounds radio cluster. All black screws. Note: two almost hiddin screws on very bottom behind ash tray opening. Check for one black screw in back bottom. Remove instrument cluster screws, then instrument cluster molding. If column shift have in L. Make sure tilt is all the way down. Remove two screws for PRDDL on instrument cluster itself if column shift. This part will later slide down. Pull out instrument cluster. There are two electric plugs that unsnap from top (press down and pull). Gently slide down/out PRDDL and leave in place. Remove instrument cluster. Replace bulb. Then repeat above inverse order.
