Indicator lamp removal?

PostPost by: The Veg » Thu Mar 03, 2016 3:16 am

How do I remove these indicator lamps from the speedometer and tachometer? No combination of pulling and/or twisting or even careful prying seems to do anything.

The metal part should just pull out. Just like the previous poster says. This is really a simple procedure. Done it many times. Black part stays in place.
