Replace instrument panel lights 1986 GMC s15

I have a 1986 GMC s15 and that I need to replace the instrument panel lights. I cannot figure out how to remove the dash parts to get to the light bulbs. This should be something simple, but I just cannot find all of the screws. Thanks for any help in getting to these bulbs.

Here is the best step by step i could find hope it helps

Remove the five mounting screws from the instrument cluster trim plate and detach the trim plate.

Remove the four mounting screws from the instrument panel faceplate and detach the faceplate.

Remove the instrument light grid from the center of the cluster

From behind the instrument cluster reach behind the speedometer and disconnect the speedometer cable by releasing the tab.

Pull the instrument cluster away from the dashboard just enough to detach the "check engine" light bulb from the center of the instrument cluster

Remove the instrument cluster from the dashboard

The feul gauge and speedometer can now be detached by removing the three mounting bolts on either component.

Installation is the reverse of removal


Good luck and have a great day
