Question about instrument lights?

Has anyone ever successfully replaced a bulb on the instrument panel without removing the nose cone?

Fuel gauge light is out.

Re: Question about instrument lights?

it can be done, easier if you have a long pair of fine needle nose pliers, or nimble hands

Re: Question about instrument lights?

Exactly what Mike said. Only the top dash cover has to be removed.
