No, they're lying, you actually have to pull the dash away from the bulkhead to get to the bulbs.

Yes, it is easy! be careful though when you pull the dash away that you don't pull out any of the wires, and depending on whether you'rs is electonic speedo or the old mechanical cable, you'll have to unplug the (mechanical) cable if it is (usually a white squeezy connector thing on the back of the speedo head)

dash lights

check that the dimming rocker switch is plugged in; left side lower dash...the lights won't work if unplugged. You can get to the dash lights by removing the 4 outer screws then pulling of the speedo cable...good luck
