Default HMV 2011 pilot lights.

Hi I need to replace two pilot lights on my radiogram, ie to light up the red round panel for the radio channels.

Can anyone tell me how I can do this as I looked at the back panel and can't seem to find and easy way to replace them?

The slotted back panel will have a couple of screws to remove and lift it out. You can then get at the bulb holders that are on the scale. The holders appear to be push fit but they have probably stuck with age. They could also break when removing them, depends on their condition. Bulbs are 12v 0.1A MES.
Unplug the power from the unit before any work, itís also a live chsssis so take the usual precautions to keep it safe to use. The service info is in the service Data top of the page, itís the R&TV one, shows a drawing of the back of the chassis.
