Replace heater/AC illumination bulbs in centre console

Hi everyone,


I'm trying to replace the bulbs that illuminate the heater and air con controls when the headlights are on. My Getz is a 2002 1.5L 'FX' RHD Australian model but I think the centre console assembly is largely the same for all of them. I know I need new T5 wedge bulbs once I get the old ones out, but how do I do this? I already got the centre console off and unclipped the Bowden cables that control various aspects of the HVAC system to get more access. I can see the back of the bulb assemblies, as shown in the photos, but I've tried twisting and pulling on them and I can't get them out. Is it actually possible to pull them out from the back or do I need to disassemble the centre console further?


Pics attached.

It's been a while since I've done it but I'm almost 100% sure they are twist and pull, they are little buggers! I know. They are the same as the Parker lights.
