The bulbs will probably get crushed and this is common, they are usually seated in the sockets pretty tight. I've called around and no one apparently works on Toyota instrument clusters. I'm going to just swap it out and have a call into the dmv inspectors to see if they can give me an answer.

Replacement instrument clusters can be purchased online or from your local Chevy dealership. I would use you and your company again if I ever needed to repair a Chevy cluster again! The part comes with a lamp and holder as one unit. Since it is mechanical, there is no easy way to roll forward the mileage on them, anyway. It lights up the front seats like a beacon at night, mainly because my windows are tinted very dark. Replacing the fuse will thus usually remedy the situation. I know now how unusual the failure is, but I did not know at the time. The lamps are replaceable with a 37 common wedge bulb.
The bulbs are likely 74 size. Remove them and you will then be able to angle the instrument cluster out. I just tried and the 74s are dangling in there.

The best route in that case would be to set the new odometer to match the existing one in the car. For a 2000 toyota 4runner, I would say it is mechanical without backup.
If you replaced the turn signals then turn on hazards to test both simultaneously. I thought I would never see that meter turning again. In this particular case the lamp holder if broken is not the same as the part nissan will order for you. The mileage on the odometer was still the same. Now you can pop the motors off the front of the board once all the old solder has been removed.
As night fell, the instrument lighting was a big problem. There is no way to tell the clusters polarity, so you just have to guess. The new clock lighting is simply amazing.
