You would need to remove the meter cluster to replace the bulb.

INSTRUMENT PANEL REMOVAL/INSTALLATION

1. Tilt the steering column down.

2. Remove the instrument panel (A).

A) Remove the screws (B).
B) Gently pull out along the bottom to release the clips (C) and hooks (D).
C) Gently pull out the upper portion of the panel.
D) With auto A/C: Disconnect the in-car temperature sensor connector (E) and the air hose (F).

3. Install the panel in the reverse order of removal. If equipped, make sure the in-car temperature sensor connector is plugged in properly, and the air hose is connected securely.

GAUGE CONTROL MODULE REPLACEMENT

1. Remove the instrument panel, then remove the upper column cover.

2. Place a clean shop towel (A) under the gauge control module to prevent scratching the steering column or dash panel.

3. Remove the screws from the gauge control module (B).

4. Disconnect the 30P connector (C), and remove the gauge control module.

5. Install the gauge control module in the reverse order of removal.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I was thinking you have problem removing the gauge cluster. The rear cover of the cluster is clipped on. You need to pry the clips to get the cover off to get at the bulbs which are LED type and I do not know if parts are available.

Btw have you performed test to determine that it is the bulb that is faulty?

My airbag light is the only light that's out so it has to be the bulb
