The light in my spedometer burned out, mercury guage. Anyone ever replace the bulb in one? Took screws off face plate, couldn't move guage to check out backside. Figure I will have to go in underneath & cut a bunch of zip ties to get some play in the wires. I dont even use the speedo, waste of a guage for me, just dont like it being out.

If you can reach in there and check, your bulb may just be askew and not making good contact. That's what mine turned out to be on my '92 Mercury guage. I also had to clean the contacts a bit as well.
