Dash Lights

Seems like I am into lighting questions lately. I have read the sticky on dash lights and I was wondering if it was possible to R/R the four main bulbs on my 68 Camaro without dropping the wheel and pulling the pod.
I would think that they would be serviceable without having to remove it all. What did they do back in the day when you went in for a blown bulb?
I have no other issues with my dash lights. I can see where there is probably only 1 or 2 of the 4 main bulbs working. I know it would be fun to get at from under the dash.
Thanks for any help.

I have owned 3 69 Z/28s: Garnet Red 30,000 mi unrestored.

Re: Dash Lights

Maybe that is why they made it so much easier to do in 69.

Yes I have read that and I was wondering if it is possible to replace the main bulbs without dropping the pod.

Re: Dash Lights

If it's possible, I'd like to know how too. I've had mine apart a number of times to replace bulbs and it's a PITA, but I don't think there's any other way to do it.
