OK, so I finally have swapped a key ring bulb in the 05/06 model. Pics shown below are of my friend's 06 SER...
I first tried to remove the lower dash panel, but had no luck getting to it that way.
Next I removed the steering wheel shroud...Still could not get to it.
Finally, I removed the gauge cover and took the screws out of the gauge bezels as well to allow them to be rotated out of the way(I did not disconnect the wires to the gauges...) This finally allowed me to get to the little bugger and get it swapped.
Here are the pics...
LOWER PANEL REMOVAL(not necessary to do, but would not hurt)
-Remove phillips screw under fuse cover
-Remove phillips screw on right, bottom side of panel
-Pop loose the bezel around the HVAC controls(pull from bottom)
-Pull lower cover loose...
STEERING WHEEL SHROUD
-Remove (3) phillips screws from bottom of shroud(easier with wheel tilted all the way up)
-No pic, but pull the two halves of the shroud apart...There are little snap in tabs on it.
GAUGE COVER AND GAUGES
-No pic, but just pull up on the cover above the gauges
-4 screws hold in the gauge cluster, 2 on top, 2 on the bottom, all phillips head
-Lift rubber flap to find the 2 on bottom...
-How I had screwdriver to remove bottom screws...Steering wheel is tilted all the way down.
-Rotate gauge cluster 90 degrees to left(may want to put a towel on dash)
CHANGE THE BULB
-Simply(yeah right) rotate the plug and remove...
-Change out bulb(check to make sure it is working, or flip bulb around)
