I don't usually post unless I know the answer for sure, but you sound like you're in a hurry so I'll give it a shot. There are two silver tabs on the front that look like heavy aluminum foil. They are just stuck on with adhesive, so you peel them off and be careful not to get the backs dirty. Then you will see the holes for access to the bulbs. The bulbs pull straight out, but the trick is getting something in there to grab them. It's been so long now that I don't remember how I did that. If necessary, take the whole unit out of the dash (not difficult at this point) and then take it with you to the tool store or auto parts store. Show them your problem and they'll help you get thr right tool.

Buy the two bulbs and then buy a vacuum hose big enough to grab the bulb...

Just twist and pull the old bulbs. Do the reverse to install. Good luck!
