if every thing is dull and you cant see it at night the globe has blown..
its just a t10 wedge bulb like the cluster bulbs...

ok yea the bulb has blown..
to take it out unfortunatly is a bit of a hasle.

you need to take the cluster surround of.. 3 screws at the top, there are 2 screw that hold it from the bottom, to get to the bottom screws of the cluster surround you need to remove the boot release and fuel cap button panel and the same panel on the other side of the column.
then you need to remove the stereo surround, there are 2 screws at the top..
next to remove the trip comp/vent facia there are 2 screws that are screwed upwards just above the stereo, there is 1 in the little pocket on the facia and 1 on the right between the heater controls and trip comp facia...
once they are un done you can pull the facia forward to get to the rear of the trip computer and the bulb is there..
