Red Service Engine Light

I have a '94 Defender with 53000 miles. I believe the Red Service Engine Light came on as a signal to replace the O2 sensors. How do I manually reset the lamp light? Thanks for the help.

There's a bunch of screws holding the dash (part that the speedo and other gauges are in) on. the front part comes off easy enough, I think 2 screws on the bottom, 1 on each side and 2 at the top, then it just pulls forward. Be careful not to pull too far as the speedo cable may come apart and require some playing with to get the center back into the rest of the cable. I felt like going outside do I took a pic of it for ya this is looking at it from the left of the steering wheel.

It's the brown box kinda in the middle, it's hard too see but someone has poked a hole in mine already, It says emissions stuff right on the box.

Thanks, that picture really helps! So I don't need to remove the gauges, etc. I need to remove the complete dash as you show? I then just poke a whole throught the brown box? Does the engine or Defender need to be on in order to do this? Is this how the dealer would do it?

You only need to pull the dash out a little, all the gauges stay in. I would try poking it with everything off, if that doesn't work try it with it on, if that doesn't work do it with it running. I am pretty sure the dealer just pokes through the hole, then replaces the sticker oh and then they charge you a bunch of $$$$$.
