Yanking the cluster and changing the bulbs is easy!!  Get some new bulbs and
go for it.

Read the codes for the check engine light.
http://www.12v.org/maint/dtc.html  This will tell you what is wrong with
your car.  The most likely codes are....

1) A speed signal code...since you have no speedometer.
2) An EGR code.  If you are approaching 100k miles this is almost a sure
bet.  If you do get the EGR code it is almost certainly a clogged EGR
3) O2 sensors
