I guess I'd better answer seriously. You take out the whole instrument
cluster by removing the screws surrounding it, and ease it toward you while
sitting in the driver's seat. You find the bad bulb and replace it (or
perhaps it's just loose?) and reverse the procedure. It's harder to do than
you might think, and took me about half an hour.

I did this for my 1995 camry - took the cluster out,
disconnected cables - replaced bad bulb behind the "D"
- put it all back together - and then, unpleasant
surprise: the air-bags light constanly on...
To the dealer and here is goes $50 for clearing the light :-(
How to avoid such unpleasant surprises during cluster removal ?

Default Panel light from pfice@accesswest.com

Thanks for being there. I read your reply re instrument light
replacement, shown below. I have a '96 Camry; I do not see any screws
around the panel; only plastic; do I pull on the plastic? there is no
room under the dash; tach light is out.
Thanks again, Paul

There are recessed holes for screws in the top side of the black trim.
