    I just replaced mine and it took ten minutes.Its super simple.You can just pull the cluster foward and the bulbs will be right on top.I have 5 or 6 new bulbs from ford I bought when they discontinued em.I can send you one.Seriously Its no big deal

    I got mine just the other day from my local dealership. All of 4$ to replace the whole cluster. Waiting on a new voltage regulator as well, cuz I only want to rip the dash once. I'll be sure to heat sink the resistor as well--good idea! I'm curious if anyone knows a way to change the colour of the cluster from green to blue maybe? I'm assuming the cluster itself is green so would require replacing lenses or the whole unit with a specialty one. Just curious if anyone has done it.

    Jonno, CoolCats.net should have something about changing the color. See this link: http://www.coolcats.net/modifying/gauges.html
