you can buy the bulbs from ford or resolder in a new bulb(T5? wedge bulb super cheap auto) into the holder. Remove the ashtray, radio plastic cover, remove dash cover then 4 screws undo cluster, remove cluster and replace bulb.

I just followed the gregory's manual process took about 1hr to repair my odometer light.

cheers and have a nice day.

By trip meter do you mean trip computer? The one that's above air vents and stereo?

If so, relatively easy. You will have access to the bulb when you remove bits of your dash as described above.
