Default dashboard illumination

My 2000 S80 has lost illumination at the mileage section of the dash. The message center is still illuminated. Any thoughts?

There are 2) t-25 screws the hold the trim on the dash above steering wheel remove them and top sect. of steering wheel to get access to cluster. then there are 4) t-25 screws holding in dash remove them and hole unit will come out after you unplug harness. then you can remove the blown bulb they are os 12/1.2 volt reassemble and your good to go.

haven't tackled it yet. Too many more pressing needs. It's finally warming up here in middle Tennessee and i've got a bushel of farm projects to complete. Hay feeder to finish, orchard to plant, garden to till, fence to replace. Barn to extend, wife to train!
