One of my instrument lights(the one between the fuel guage and the left side of the speedo) went out. I took it to the dealer today and they wanted to charge $200.00 to take apart the instrument display to replace all the bulbs so I would have a good time remaining on their life. Has anyone else ever had this problem? Is this something I could maybe do myself, or is better just to take it back to the dealer. Any input would be greatly appreciated !!!

You can do it yourself in 20 minutes.

I did it myself with those instructions. They were fantastic! $200 that's crazy. I could only find the bulbs at the dealer $5 CAN ea.

Replaced all instrument cluster bulbs (11) in mine a few weeks ago. Happened to come across a post inquiring about the bulbs & recalled that I had a few which were not operating. Instructions made the
job painless, took approx. 20 min. & I didn't drop
any "F" bombs.
