The driver information center does not have bulbs - it uses a vacuum-tube flourescent display. We need more detail on the problem.

OK, follow this procedure in Techinfo - There should be no glue involved, however, you must be very careful when taking it apart.

The dealer for sure, maybe autozone. That'* the procedure I was telling you about yesterday. Just be careful when taking it apart. Remember where everything went.

Wow.... I suppose this would be similar for a 87-91... that'* good to know it can be repaired.... because I'm sure you can't order it anymore.

Your best bet would be to pull the bulb out that you want to replace, and then take it over to Autozone. If they don't have it, hopefully the dealer will.

Not sure - Take it to the store to see if you can find a similar one.
