you have the one that looks like mine right? Mine has 3 light bulbs behind it, you have to take out your radio, and there's a lever to pop it out.

On the back of the OBC theres a regular cluster bulb in a holder. (The exact same ones you use for your idiot lights and stuff in the cluster) Just take needlenose pliers and twist it a quarter turn and pull it out, replace the bulb, and put it back in. The fun part is getting the OBC out! I wish they were like the 6 button clock with the front tabs :( I just retrofitted mine.....I love it....but it was a PITA to get in there...and just as much fun to get out!
