I am trying to replace the light bulbs in the instrument cluster. After removing the bulb holder from the circuit boards, I can't remove the light bulb from the holder. Any help out there?

Hi, I think you might find that with some bulbs the plastic holder is integral and the replacement bulb has the holder attached. I've certainly come across this with other makes of cars, but not had a bulb blown on the 5 as yet, other than the hear control illumination which is a bit of a bitch to get to!
