You've got to pop out the instrument cluster to get to it. I'm not sure specifically about that model, but most instrument clusters I've seen can be removed by a few screws on the front of them. Then its just a matter of popping the bulb out, and Bob's your uncle.

I think it's British in origin. Doesn't make much sense to me, but I kinda like keeping stuff like that alive, ya know?
