Bulbs Behind the speedotmeter

Hello all!
Im doing some light restoration on my 1974 grandville. Almost all of the bulbs behind the speedometer and tachometer has blown. i have replaced most of them exept 4. the ones i cant get to is the rightmost one and the top one behind the speedometer. and the two bottom ones. i might be able to get to 3 exept the right one with some fidling. How to i get to the right one?
Any hidden ones i should be aware of?

Regards from Norway!

Do you have the 1974 factory shop manual?
Are there any removal AC ducts under the dash?
Have you considered dropping the steering column?

Thumbs up Fixed it

Completely forgot i posted here.
I got it fixed.
I kind of started out wrong, i took apart the whole speedometer assembly, didnt have to do that at all.
take the big panel on the underside of the dash off. take the wood imitation panel off, take the raio out. now you can take your hand in where the radio sits and take of the clip on the speedo wire and lift the whole speedometer assembly out. now you have complete access to the twist connector for each lamp. You can even buy those twist connectors on ebay new.
