they will wear out.
When I had my cluster out on time, I desoldered the old batteries, soldered in
some lead wires, and used my own NiCd batteries in a battery box. This box is
now an "outrigger" Velcroed to the back of the cluster. I can swap those
batteries easily with disassembling the cluster.
With longer wires, you could access the batteries in the foot well.
Now my "countdown" service indicator LEDs work properly.
