Default Garrard 401 neon

Good evening, clever people

I've just got this Garrard 401 turntable.

I don't know how bright it should be, but the neon? it seems pretty dim.

Three questions, so far:

1 How do I remove the bulb?

2 Are replacement bulbs available?

3 Can it be replaced with some sort of LED setup?

As usual, any help would be appreciated.

It could be replaed with LCD (or a group of) in theory, but why when a bulb would do it?

We went down this route a few months ago

Post 16 is where to get new bulbs and 18 is the cct to replace with LED's

Any tool can be used as a hammer but a screwdriver makes the best chisel
