    if you have adjustable steering column, set it fully rearward. If not, you gotta take the wheel off. Has airbag, and I'd get someone else to do it then 'cos those things can do serious damage if they go off and your heads in the way, but, assuming yours is the same as mine, then _ make two little hooks (or one) out of strong wire or old small screwdriver, or skewer or such, or sell an arm and a leg and buy one from a dealer. Feed it in behind the instrument panel (I started on the left) and gently pull the instruments out, bit at a time, one side at a time. They will just pull out enough to get behind it and change the bulbs. Just push it back in when done. Cheers
