Default Need help replacing gauge bulbs please..

I have an 04 ram and the gas gauge bulb is out. Also, can't see my gauges where the a/c, fan and temp controls are at, guess those bulbs are out as well. Anyone have a video or instructions how to remove what I need to replace these on a 04 ram? thanks. Also, what bulbs do I need?

For the HVAC controls there will be one phillips screw in the bag holder that is molded into your interior under your radio, once you remove that screw that entire piece just pulls off and give you access to the back of the hvac panel to change the lights.

For the Gauge cluster, this one is a little more challenging, the panel right in front off your knees simply pulls down out of the way then while you have the aforementioned hvac piece off there will be screws that hold the trim that goes around the cluster starting from the right side of the steering wheel all the way around to the left side of the steering wheel, once you get all the screw removed you have to pop all of the surrounding trim out and then the cluster has 4 screws that hold it in. once those are clear you will be able to pull the cluster out, there are 3 wire looms that plug in and are a bitch to reach and unplug from the back of the gauges once you get them unplugged you can try and carefully position the cluster in a way which it will come out, you have to have your head tilted just right, then all the lights are right on the back of the board. if you have a set of torx screwdrivers it does make it easier to remove the first black cover from the cluster on the backside as it allows you to get to the lights much easier

My bulb is out on my HVAC controls. I use the light from my phone to let me know where my knobs are pointing.
Thanks
