Jose (User Saleen_S351) replaced his light bulbs. I do not recall if he posted anything.

Basically, you will remove the radio and possibly the center stack trim panel. This will allow assess to the dash pod mounting hardware. You will undo the mounting hardware and fittings to the mechanical VDO gauges.

Once pod is removed, change the bulbs. I do not recall if the gauges need to be removed from the pod to gain assess to the bulbs.

Jose installed LED bulbs, I believe, for better lighting.

It was simple except for the alarm led that made it difficult to get around the bezel. I used a torch 20 bit.
I will see how I like it. When it gets dark.
