As for the dash lights, you could probably handle fixing this by yourself. The dash cover that extends from the left side of the car over the steering wheel and down to the radio just pops out. Then there are 6 or 8 screws around the gauge cluster that have to come out. The ones on the bottom of the plastic cover are easy to get to. The ones on top are a pain though, because you have to hold the top dash panel up about an inch to get your screwdriver at the top screws. once that plastic cover is out the gauge cluster should be able to be worked and wedged out. Once it is out go ahead and unplug all the bulbs from the back, they should be turned first and then lifted out. Take one of them(because they are all the same bulb) to the parts store and match them up numberwise if you can read them or sizewise if you can't. They were cheap so I bought 7 packs(14 bulbs) and replaced all the ones in the dash. You really don't want to have to do this again! Replace all the bulbs and be careful putting the guage cluster back in, it has only one plug-in spot and it is hard to hit. then just bolt everything back in. Good luck! Mine is an 88SSE, I hope it isn't any different in this area of the car.
