Default TD-613 Bulb Replacement

I found two bulbs at the front of the radio but there doesn't seem to be an easy way to remove them. I found a post on MVS here but the user there had to solder. Is there an easier way and, if so, (a) how and (b) what bulbs are used?

Here ya go (see below). The bulbs can be found on either side of the display. They don't appear to be able to be pulled straight out and I don't want to risk yanking on them only to break the connection with the board. The bulbs go into a plastic housing that has turns down at a 90 deg angle toward the board. The bulbs had little blue plastic covers (presumably to blend with the yellow bulbs to make a green value?) but I don't plan on putting them back.

Hard to tell from the photos but it does look kinda like further disassembly and soldering might be required.

In my personal experience, Volvo's dash bulbs tend to be neo-wedge t3, t4, t4-t4.7 or t5 size. If RadioShack were still around, I'd suggest taking the bulb there to find a match.

Yup - def looks like soldered - you have the long stems on the bulb that folds back into holder.

Also - if you still have those blue caps, I’ll take them - hard to come by those haha.
