I was mislead by the description and thought I didn't have to take the circuit board out. But it appears that the older design (on '97 Acura TL) was more user-friendly when it comes to replacing the gear indicator bulbs... I was really afraid of breaking something and hesitated to use the flat head screw driver on the circuit board.
Haha...I posted in that thread about the same problem with my 3.2TL. That generation model is notorious for having a burnt out D4 light. What I did was instead of buying a new bulb, I took the "1" gear light and swapped it with the D4 light. My logic is that I never use "1" gear anyways since it's an automatic so I used that bulb instead of spending $5 for a light bulb.
