All dash funtions work great, except the speed digital read out is not as bright as the tach readout? Could it be just the bulb? and is it a replaceable process, with out removing the cluster?
Hi douglas, Yes and yes. The first time you lift out the facia it's a bit tricky. Make sure you undo ALL the screws, including those on the drivers side jamb, pull off the small metal caps to expose the bulb(s) , remove and replace carefully, using long nose pliers, with cloth between them and the bulb.

Roger, thanks for your reply. Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you. Followed your advice it was a complete success. The one thing i would like to worn all C4 owners about,if they incure this same problem, is to watch out when buying a replacement bulb!! I went to a local GM dealer to buy my 882 bulb, the parts manager said,"you better sit down,your replacement 882 bulb will cost $44.00,and that includes MN. sales tax. Plus it will take 4 days to get, no local dealers have any on hand". I told him,"i will look around". went to Auto Zone,don't stock,told Napa my stock but, tried O'riley auto in my area. Agent checked computer had two 882s instock, price $9.69 each. PLus i am a MSRA member, total price for two 882s, need a spear, less than $15.00 bucks. I know GM has to pay back the gov't loan, but do they have to price their factory parts like military prices their stuff to the gov't. Remember the hammer for $200.00 dollars, that was built into the cost the gov't was to pay the military. Just thought i would vent!! Thank again
