how to replace light bulbs in auto column gear shift indicator

Anyone remove the (PRND21) gear indicator on the column of their CJ? I need to replace the light bulb and paint the tab (that lines up with the gear you're in). The service manual just says to remove the clips with a punch...but it kinda looks like they're in a little opening just behind the indicator and not easy to get at.

Thanks!

Yup, you gotta remove the clips. I think I ended up using a small screwdriver and a pick.

Pushed them down and pulled them out. I think there was only one clip that had to be removed, then the housing just unclips from the other clip(s).
