    How do I replace a Check Engine Light bulb which burned out in a 2001 Voyager

    How do you get into the "hump" above the instrument cluster to simply change the Check Engine Light bulb.
    Will it be necessary to remove the entire instrument cluster and board to get to hidden screws or does the "hump" simply pry off. I don't want to break any clips by forcing anything. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Ironic, if only because many people want that light to go out for good!

    Yes I do want it to go out but not like this. Anyone want to buy a bad bulb cheap let me know. Thank you for your help. I'll try to accomplish the removal later in the week since today is mothers day!

    Yea, and you can get a [not so] pleasant surprise @ you next emissions test (with a price tag to boot) if the bulb is dead...

    I got impatient so I took a small pry bar and a piece of cardboard to protect the dash, lifted gently and the clips popped out easily. I replaced the bulbs with replacements I had ordered from "Light Spectrum Enterprises" that I found on the web. Very reasonable replacement price. Thanks again.
    Now to figure out what's causing my check engine light.
