Gear Shift Selector Back Light

The bulb that lights up the gear shift selections is out on my 2000. How hard is it to get at the bulb to replace it. I'm not mechanically inclined but I can follow directions pretty well. Thanks.

Pull off the trim around your shifter. Unplug the light that plugs into the back of the shifter. Put a new bulb in Is it only that bulb?

SO, there should be a light near the gear shift indicating the gear...Mine is not visible at all at night! I asked the dealer about it, and they said that it doesn't light up (despite my argument that it should).

I saw an Xterra that had put LED's throughout the interior. Do you know what type of LED I would need to get for that particular light? Might as well start somewhere, right?

i'll be damned, i've never seen mine on. But a look in the fsm shows "at device illumination", i'm assuming thats it.
