Odometer light not working.

My odometer light isn't working. Anyone know how to fix this? Dealer said they have to take out the whole assembly to get to the bulb and there's still a possibility that they have to replace the whole unit. Anyone else have had the same problem?

Here is some info that I could quickly find:

"You were correct in checking all the fuses first. Generally speaking should it be a fuse you will lose your gauges as well. The most common problem with the loss of the LCD display for the odometer and other functions in that panel is a bulb. To access it you must remove the cluster. Once removed it is located directly in back of the LCD and is a 1.5W 12V.

I tried to upload the pdf file with the instruction to get to the back of the dash. But it is more than 2 mb, so if you send me your email, i can send to you directly. After this, not a big problem at all. Make sure you have a second car to go to the dealer and buy that bulb, not expensive at all.

Scroll down on this page a bit and you'll see how to remove your cluster.

More information about the lamp location can be located on my web site:
