Headlight on reminder buzzer/alarm stopped working

My headlight on reminder buzzer stopped working recently (after 14 years of working). I would like to fix the problem by replacing the buzzer or some other fix or do some kind of work around so that I am warned about leaving headlights on.

In a thread on this forum entitled Audible alarm when lights left on

CTScott, who is one of the most knowledgeable posters on this forum, wrote:

"The buzzer is easily accessible on the back side of the PCB for the cluster. It is a 5VDC piezoelectric buzzer"

Can anybody please confirm the fact that that buzzer can be accessed and removed from the back side of the instrument cluster?

I have not been able to confirm that this is the case, despite doing quite a bit of research including in Chilton's online manual for the Yaris. And another poster in the same thread wrote: "the piezo is built into the gauge cluster IIRC.. you're pretty much screwed.. "

Thank you,
