That and removing dash pad will do the trick
OOOPPS sorry just noticed its a malibu. 2 blank slots on the warning light row pop out and then the whole cluster can be removed

To get to the lamps for the speedometer area you need to remove the dash pad. To swap the indicator lamps do as Philip says. But, philip, aren't there 3 blanks that need to be removed? If you look very closely, it is obvious which blanks are to be removed.

Go through the top by removing the dash pad. Should be able to get behind the cluster. The dash cluster won't come out unless you remove the entire dash. I disconnected my seat belt warning system 31 years ago. Dumb thing kept going off.

simply remove the dash pad,
and aproach the cluster carefully
I recommend you drop the dash to get to the lower bulbs, unless you have small hands
tricky job, but woth doing them all at one time
