Jeep WJ Factory Radio - Install LEDs to replace failing original bulbs?

Over time, the bulbs used to backlight the controls and pushbuttons of the Jeep WJ factory radio/CD player get dimmer and dimmer and then fail.

Has anyone successfully installed LEDs in the factory radio to rectify the issue?

I just pulled out my factory radio to take a peak inside, but it doesn't use a standard screw type -- so I wasn't able to open it up. It may be some sort of torx screw.

Anyway, I was wondering if the Laredo stock radio/CD player takes the standard PC74 bulbs used in the HVAC and if the radio bulbs are screw in or soldered in.

If I replace the bulbs with white LEDs will it turn the illuminate blue? In the instrument cluster and HVAC, Chrysler appears to have used tinted blue film which appears green when yellow incandescent bulbs are used.
