Dash bulb replacement

The bulb that lights up my speedometer has gone out. How does one go about replacing the bulb? 1999 9-5

take the dash fascia out and un do the screws holding the speedometer and disconnect the 2 plugs and remove the speedo, after that its pretty straight forward. Also its not just one bulb it should be several bulbs.

Do you need to pull out the vents and various dash buttons to get to the lights? Have one out in the middle of the cluster.

Any cross references to Rat Shack or other places, bulbs are listed at $7+ per.
