SVT Instrument Panel Lights/Bulbs: Questions

Hello Everyone!

I have two 2003 SVT Foci. The digital odometer in my "newer" SVT is dark...no backlight. Can anyone tell me if the digital LCD display has its own bulb for backlighting, and if so, what bulb number is it? Also, when replacing bulbs in the cluster, does the instrument cluster come out by just removing the screws along the top of the cluster, or is there a few more steps than that?

I've searched the forum and haven't found anything addressing my question.

THANKS!

If it's like the SE, there are a couple screws up under the top lip of the panel.
There is a normal bulb right behind the trip display.
Not sure of the bulb number, but it is just a push in socket type, very small.

Ciao! Bobb, there is a seperate wire on the back of the guages for the backlight. Guages if I recall have 4 screws holding it in, surround has 2 screws. I have spare guage clusters if you need, or for parts.
