Dash Light Removal & Replacement 140?

Is there a special tool to remove the dash on a 96' S420?

Need to replace a light bulb?

I also need to replace the bulb on the headlight switch? How in the world to get to it???

Thanks!

Don't know if the 140 is like the 124, but for what it's worth...

The instrument cluster just pops out. You can either A) get a wire a little thinner than a coathanger and put a crook in it to pull by - slip between the guages and the dash, turn the wire for the hook to catch and yank it out or B) take the dash speaker out - takes a small stubby screwdriver - then you can push it out with your hand or something from the rear. Once the instruments are out you can get to the headlight switch bulb also. When I replace instrument light, I replace them ALL.
