Exclamation Dash lights burnt out... How to replace? HELP PLEASE!!

So I have a '97 Impreza Outback and my dash lights went out. Well actually the left part where the tach is ok, but the speedometer/gas side is burnt out. How do I replace those lights? I'll probably do both sides at the same time. Can I change the color or make them extra bright?

Help asap...not very good for night driving and NOT getting pulled over

I just did a few of these on a lumina pain in ass but. Go get those microlamps from radioshack there like 2 for 2-3 bucks. Well this is for climate control etc.

Pull the cluster on back side there are these tiny grey knobs that hold the bulbs prob the 176 model or something like that at advance auto. Super easy!

How do I actually remove the dash guages and all? How about the climate ones? Are the microlamps just small bulbs...is that what you mean? I've never in my lifetime had to replace dash bulbs. Seems odd. Thanks. Anybody know the exact bulb size? Options besides green?

If any one has a pic or link too that would be awesome. I'm no good at electric stuff.

man on a 97 outback i wouldnt know where to start lol. See if you can search "change cluster" or cluster bulbs something to that effect and that should help you get a general idea.

Ok so I got the guage apart and finally got the 2 bulbs out. It doesn't say the size but they are 10mm wide. Anybody know what size like 194, etc that is? Thinking about red LED's. Any legitimate places that have those?

Yep...they are 194. I took one to schucks. They even had red colored bulbs there so I swapped those in. I would prefer it to be brighter but at least I can see now =) Possibly going to look in LED's. I don't want blue because thats so ricer though. I want bright red like the STI
