T-5 bulbs rear console

I have tried searching for an answer to this but have not been able to find anything that is helpful.

Does anyone know of the method used for replacing the T-5 bulbs in the rear console of the E-92. I have taken the white lens cover off however, there doesn't seem to be any easy manner of removing the bulbs from the holder in the console.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Once you take of the white cover use a flat head and pull the full housing out. Then the bulbs are accessible.

You're pretty sure about this? I looked at doing that but, they don't seem to want to come out and I didn't want to wreck anything........

For the plug just pull out...for the outer tabs use a small flat head or a tool that is pointy and then pull the housing off then you'll be able to see the bulbs easily. Hope this helps.
