Default Does anyone have a pic of the back of my 89 instrument cluster?

I would like to fix the light bulb that illuminates the lower left corner of the instruments - I can't see the fuel gauge at night! Its an 89 with the text display.

I can just get my hand up there but I need to know where the bulb is, and how to change it.

Alternatively, how hard is removing the cluster?

If you use "search this forum" for (89 instrument bulb) there is a write up " 15 minute....." w/pics done on 7/13/10 by
Schocki that might be helpful to you I believe it's a later 928 however bulbs should be comparable, with pics on cluster removal....

The main cluster illumination bulb is a 9mm wedge base, type 194/168. Porsche part # is 928 641 982 01.

If you can reach it in situ, then by all means, it's just a 1/4 turn CCW to get the bulb holder out . No way could I do that with my mitts, but pod removal is a 10 minute job once you've done it once or twice, using Schocki's instructions.

Here's the bulb you're after:



And its socket:
