Instrument panel (speedometer) light out

'06 Mariner with one of apparently two lights out that illuminate the speedometer. Here, the left side. Two questions.

1. How do you replace the burned out/malfunctioning light?


2. Should I replace all the lights when (I presume) the instrument panel is open for service? I don't know whether these lights are failure prone or not.
The Mariner has 85,000 miles on it and I'd rather do the job one time. I don't even know if these are LEDs or regular old-fashioned bulbs.

Thanks.

Strangely, the light came back to life and all is (apparently) well. So now I have dash lights I don't trust. Any ideas out there? Thanks.

Maybe a poor connection somewhere in the dash. It also may never do that again.
