1997 Isuzu Rodeo • 6 cylinder 4WD Manual • 170,000 miles

I have a 1997 Isuzu Rodeo V6 with 170,000 miles on it and recently the 2 dashboard light bulbs behind the right side of the dash - the side that shows the speedometer, oil pressure and gas gauge - went out. The other lights - dash, radio, heater, center console, etc. - Are working fine. I understand you have to remove the dashboard as well as the instruments panel in order to reach these bulbs. Could you give me an estimate of time to do this job for someone who has never done it and someone who has done it before? I am trying to get an idea of the job involved and if I can afford having a garage taking care of it. Thank you for your feedback.
