USA 2001 Camry Instrument cluster light replacement

Help, I'm trying to find out the best way to replace the light bulbs for the Instrument cluster panel on a 2001 Toyota Camry (4 cyl). Initially (a few months ago) part of the dash/instrument panel lighting went out, but last evening the other light went out. The lights still do work for the radio & heating/AC knobs section, only the lights for the Speedometer/Odometer section have gone out. The dimmer switch still works for the Heating area, so I'm assuming that there is no problem with the fuses...just the dash bulbs. What's the best way to replace them? I'm assuming that I must remove the instrument cluster & it's outer coverings to get to them. Are there any videos or possibly a step by step breakdown that could help me with this? Thanks much!

I don't know if there's a DIY for a 2001. But this one is for a gen3 Camry, which is probably very similar.

This DIY for your generation 4 should show you how to remove your car's gage pod to get to and replace the bulbs.
