Default Tachometer Bulb

Does anyone know how to remove the instrument cluster to access the dial bulbs? I have a burned out tach bulb and need to replace it. Thanks.

My car is a 2000 Outback Wagon 2.5.

Check out the Scoobymods web site first, but in my car you remove the trim panel (four screws) which exposes the gauge cluster in its entirety. Now I haven't gone there yet, but I beleieve there a series of screws holding the gauge cluster in place. Probably remove them, tilt the cluster forward and remove and replace suspect bulb. Anyone else care to provide comment?

I searched that site but found nothing. Perhaps I should post my question there.

There are only two visible screws on my 2000 and I really can't see their purpose. There has to be a trick to remove the trim that I'm just not seeing. I really suspect there are hidden tabs that have to be depressed with a scewdriver/blade. I'm surprised that I seem to be the first one trying to solve this problem.

Be careful when you're tinkering around in there. Some of those screws can be easy to drop.
