On the small gauges I recall the sockets being a friction fit into the holes and just need a bit of wriggling to remove them.

Cheers

Yeah, I recall that the tach and speedo have different bulbs and sockets than the small gauges....can't remember if there's any trick to remving them though. Maybe they're the type you twist 45 to disengage?

Not sure what you mean by 'sealed'.

All the bulbs come out of the gauges one way or the other.

Cheers

figured it out
tach bulb is a screw/threaded type. the housing is a multi pronged fitting that you pry or twist out of the tach base
