Center Dash Removal, Lighting replacement

The lighting under the right side of the center dash for the climate controls on my 230 has burned out. Can someone direct me to some instructions on how to pull the section to replace this bulb. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Regards

...but to replace the 2 bulbs, I had to use a solder to get them.
....and you should also know how the regulators where placed when you move away the unit with the two regulators. If not, the buttons would not show the correct selections for the adjustment.

Use a small screwdriver with a soft cloth between it & the chrome ring, to pry the control knob off.
The picture shows the bulb with the small metal flap pulled back.
you must push the flap out of the way and pull the bulb out (not easy)
the bulb is Sylvania #2721
