Lightbulb How to replace the clock bulb?

Hello,

I have a 2005 Ford Five Hundred Limited which has the back lit analog clock on the center console.

Can anyone please let me know how to replace its light bulb?

Thanks,

Gabor

The clock is centered in the dash trim, between the climate vents.. Corrrect?

The clock/register trim panel 'snaps' to the dash with clip retainers.. Looks like the clock is stand alone component and the bulb is integral to the clock.. Once you remove the trim panel and clock, remove the clocks harness connector and check for illumination voltage on the LG/RD wire.. Clock power is on the RD wire..

Thanks! But how exactly do I "remove the trim panel and clock"?
By "bulb is integral to the clock" do you mean there is no way to replace the bulb alone, only the whole clock?
