It's a pain, the instrument panel has to be pulled out and they are changed from the back side. They are the same bulbs that go in the corner markers in the front.

" How do you pull the panel?"

Four screws across the top, four or five under the trim on the bottom. Remove all the screws and remove the bezel. Four more screws around the instrument cluster and it''s out. You still have to unfasten the speedo cable from underneath the dash and it all falls out for you, replace with long life bulbs.
