    Hey guys, I know its been a while, but I finally got a new 6thgen. Decided to go for a v6 :thumbsup: 1998 with only 118k miles, oh yeah and its white haha

    Anyway, a couple of dash lights are not working. Are the bulbs easy to get to? Are the bulbs available anywhere or only dealer sold?

    It is the clock light, the lightbulb that shows where the gear shifter is (the one in the center console) and one right by the a/c control. it doesn't light up half of the little knob :/

    All help would be most appreciated

    A simple search would've got you the answer. They sell them at autozone or if you want you can get on superbrightleds.com and order led's. hope this helps.

    if you pull the gauge cluster its very simple. You can get leds or go to the parts store and get 194 bulbs i forgot the other sizes so you will have to look. The bulbs in the cluster are pc bulbs [twist in] but you can pull the bulb out of the socket and replace. It may save you a few dollars if you go with just the bulbs themselves.

    It isn't the gauge cluster its the dash controls.
