Default Instrument Cluster Lights

So... I lost my temper and hit the top of my dashboard while I was driving today.

Now, my lights look like this...

The oil pressure gauge lights and the tach needle are dim.

The rest of the lights are just fine. The SES light is lighting up most of the tach needle.

How can i trouble shoot this? I was planning on taking the dash trim out and then working out the instrument cluster to find where the wires come from. The left half of the speedometer come on and off if i tap the dash now.
