Default Repair Red Light in Gauges?

At night, I've notice some of the lights in my gauges are out. How easy of a repair is this? thanks,

Simple,,look at the back of the gauge and you will see a twist socket dooo hicky,un twist it and install a new bulb,the oe bulb may have a rubber cover over it to make the light red,that will also need to be transfered to the new bulb to match the color of the lights.

You can also purchase the red bulbs from most auto parts stores, I found that they are brighter than using the rubber cover (bulb condems) LOL

You may need to clean up the area where it makes contact also... a rubber stone works nice
