How do I change a lightbulb?

Seriously.

My illumination light is out on the temp gauge. I thought I would just pop off the screws on the faceplate and the little philips screw in the odometer knob and it would come right off.

That plate isn't moving.

I've now disassembled the nose and it doesn't look anymore intuitive trying to see underneath it.

What am I missing here? How do I get to that light?

Thanks!

Alright, I finally got it. That was about intuitive as a hummingbird getting it on with a dolphin. I didn't think I'd have to take that much stuff apart for a lightbulb.

Uglyknob, Whenever I commented about how things are attached on the '98 my son just commented on how good it looks, I heard that alot for awhile. I'm used to it now and I'm even considering adding a 2000 D955i... it looks good in silver.
