Sorry no pictures.
the bulb still was not burned out and I could not get the bulb out of the circuit board so I remelted the solder, added some to both sides of the inplace bulb contact point and then used the radio shack bulb 272-1141which has 1.5 inch leads and did like the LED fix on this web page: http://users.adelphia.net/~bpaskevic...amp_repair.htm
except my old bulb is still in there.
did this on April 2 and its still working. this bulb is not as bright as the original but is still functional in all light conditions. and generating less heat as well.
hoping its fixed permanently!! And I am getting good at taking the dash apart quickly
