Replacing

I really need to know how to replace the instrument panel lights on a 1994 escort. Also what is the correct timing setting on the same car?

You'll have to remove the instrument cluster to replace the lights.

If I remember correctly, the timing is 10 degrees BTDC, but I also believe this model has a non-adjustable distributorless ignition system (DIS).

You must remove the steering wheel, inst. cluster
Loosen-remove all those switches on the steering column and loosen up (or remove) the rest of the dash

10 degrees BTDC
Non-Adj. DIS

What is the mileage?
Replacing the timing belt on these is no problem for a handy DIY
