Question New Member Need Help

I am a new member.
I have a 2005 XC90. The instrument panel lights have gone out in everything but the tach. Was told I could replace them so I bought bulbs. Got into the instrument panel to find there are no bulbs to replace.
I cannot find any instruction or video on fixing panel without bulbs. I have found that every time I try to repair or replace something, the standard part never fits my car.
Help, any suggestions

Looks like the bulb design was for 2004 and prior. The DIMs (aka instrument clusters) are known to have solder joint issues so you may need to search for a repair shop who rebuilds units by resoldering the common fault areas. They also may be able to offer some insights via their web pages.
