Replace gauge light in instrument panel

Hi - just had a background light in my speedometer blow out.  Any ideas on how to replace (can I purchase only a bulb or does the entire gauge need replaced)?  I have a 2013 SS211 so thoroughly disappointed that a light has burned out already.  The nearest dealer is over 100 miles away so a DIY solution is preferred.

    You should be able to change out the bulb by accessing the back of the instrument panel.  You probably won't even have to remove the gauge. 

    I attached a diagram from Faria that shows the placement of the light assembly on the back of the gauge.  Hope this helps.
