Question for the masses...

How does one remove the backlight from an early model 450?

I've got what I believe is a burned out backlight bulb in my tach. It looks like it could be just a rubber boot that presses in to the tach housing with a bit of interference or a rubber hook?

Any good ideas on how to get the bulb out and replaced without damaging the rubber?

Thanks.

Pinch and wiggle it.... Just a rubber press fit

Reinstall using a small amount of "rubber" grease.

Thanks for the replies. Wish I would've read the "rubber grease" one first. Just replaced the bulb. I only slightly tore the rubber boot. Hopefully this bulb lasts 40 years too!
