Don't take the strip off!  The binnacle and instrument cluster come off 
together.  There are six 4mm studs that secure the binnacle to the dash. 
  You will have to lie down in the driver's foot well to get to them. 
Four of them come thru the dash itself and two are on either side of the 
steering column, tangled up with the leather gaiter.  Use an 7mm deep 
socket to remove the nyloc nuts.  Watch for falling washers as the nuts 
come off.  With all of the nuts removed, you can lift the binnacle away 
from the dash, reach between the the dash and binnacle in the rear, and 
disconnect the speedo cable, [just press down on the tab], then unplug 
the two electrical connectors, [squeeze the ends and pull].  This is 
easier to say than do.  With the binnacle in hand you can replace the 
bulbs directly from the back of the cluster.

If you want to go farther, four screws hold the cluster into the 
binnacle, then remove the six screws that hold the lens to the cluster. 
  Be careful re-installing the lens. The little ears that the screws go 
thru are easy to break.  So is the trip reset shaft.
