Replacement of instrument panel lights - Jaguar XJ8

Vehicle is a 1998 Jaguar XJ8. I need to replace one or two instrument panel lights. During night driving, the right hand half of speedometer is dark and, also, the next gauge to the right (fuel or temp - I forget which) is dark. I'm wondering if someone can tell me whether replacing these bulbs is a big job or a little job and if it is little, what is the basic procedure? Before taking this problem to the dealer service department ($$$$), I would like to determine whether this might be a DIY job. Thank you.

I do not know how to replace the bulbs on the Jag but I can tell you go and replace all of them at once when you have it done or do it yourself.
The bulbs turn black from age and new ones will only prolong having to go back in there for a second time.
Good luck
