Take your time and have a guide infront of you so you know what you're doing.

If you installed your iSimple, then you should already know how the dash comes apart.

The bulbs are easy to replace - twist out and twist in, just kinda like a light bulb.
Getting to the bulb is the hardest part.

You don't have to take the nav apart.

You just take the nav out, and at the back of the nav are the bulbs you replace.

There's only 4 bolts holding the nav/radio to the dash.
Remove those, unplug all the connectors in the back, remove the radio/nav, then remove the nav from the radio (easier to work with) and replace the bulbs.

Attempted dash lights today. To replace 12. We went threw 20. And I had to order more. In doing so also broke my upper console in front of gearshift 183$ mistake. And don't know how it happened all in all it's a pain in the ass and I'd say if you don't have OCD and burned out bulbs don't bother you. Dont fix it

You broke the storage bin assembly?

There are clips on the side that you have to pry the side kick panels to disengage the clips.
